Obiano once said Ojukwu no longer relevant to APGA – Bianca

Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, the widow of the late leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, has  explained why she boycotted the party’s campaign inauguration on Saturday in Awka, Anambra State.

She said she had to stay away from the party’s campaign inauguration because Obiano once described Ojukwu   as a “dead man who was no longer relevant” to the party.

She described as an irony of opportunism for APGA to resuscitate her husband’s name for the purpose of winning the November 6 poll.

She said, “This is  the height of opportunism and hypocrisy. Is Ojukwu not the same man Obiano once described as a dead man who was no longer relevant to the party?

“Why should I permit him to keep trampling on the legacy of my late husband who put his heart and soul into this party?

“Ojukwu should not be like a light switch to be turned on for party campaign, and turned off once the election is won.

“It is most unfortunate that Obiano decided to remove the picture of Ojukwu on APGA uniforms  and replace same with his picture, just to drive home his statement that he would no longer tie the fate and fortunes of APGA to the memory of a dead man, obviously in reference to my husband.”

She regretted that the Senator Victor Umeh-led peace and reconciliation committee put up to pacify aggrieved APGA members had been discarded by the governor and the party leadership.

She described APGA as presently constituted as a field of sorrow, but, however, optimism that the party had  a good chance of producing  the next governor of Anambra State based on past glory.
