First son of the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Emeka Jr. has taken a swipe at his father’s widow, Amb. Bianca Ojukwu and the former First Lady of Anambra State, Ebele Obiano for engaging in a fight at the inauguration of Governor Charles Soludo on Thursday.
Emeka, in a release, described the action of Bianca as an insult on the name, image and integrity of his father, adding that it was also a display of lack of respect for her late husband.
He contended that Bianca had no need to engage in a fight because the challenge thrown to her by Ebele Obiano is avoidable and did not call for any form of response let alone a fight.
Emeka, however, noted that the actions of the former first lady was unbecoming of a true Igbo woman, noting that he is not taking sides with any of them but that it is a wrong time to make such a display of hooliganism by the two.
He also congratulated Soludo on his inauguration as governor of Anambra State and asked that he should not be distracted by the in-house political and personal interest by some party members.
“I understand the sentiments and I cannot stop anyone from taking sides, but did Zik’s wife, Awo’s wife, Tafala Balewa’s wife, etc. ever fight in public?
“This is a shame to Eze Igbo and to Ndi Igbo. No matter our justifiable issues with either camp or both camps even, let’s remember that we are Ndi Igbo, a proud people and for us, what is wrong is wrong; period. This is a shameful display by all concerned. Nothing more,” he said. Courtesy (excluding headline) New Telegraph
