Bianca Ojukwu speaks on her senatorial ambition

Mrs. Bianca Odumegwu Ojukwu, wife of the late Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA, Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, said her election to the Nigerian Senate would boost the acceptability of APGA and the Igbo nation in Nigeria.

Widow of the Biafra strong man spoke at the Orumba-North and South council areas, where she asked for support from the stakeholders of the party.

She called on them to support her intention to represent Anambra South in the National Assembly.

Her visit to the Orumba-North and South Council Areas came on the heels of her public declaration for the seat, which took place recently at Ekwulobia, Aguata Local Government Area.

She said she decided to live for the Senate so she can bring the desired change, noting that democracy without employment, empowerment and other dividends of democracy is not worth it.

Bianca said she believes in equity, fairness and justice and will not attract anything short of that if elected.

She said, "My presence at the Senate will further promote APGA ideology and acceptance of the Igbo nation by other states of the country."

One of her stauch supporters, and Professor of Chemistry, Surgery and Pain Management, Dr Godwin Mmaduka said that the appearance of the widow of the Late Biafran warlord, Mrs. Odumegwu-Ojukwu is like a renewed hope for the future of the APGA and the Igbo nation.

Mmaduka added that as a mother, Mrs. Odumegwu-Ojukwu will protect the interest of the people in the area to sustain the legacies of the heroes who fought for the Igbo, including late Nnamdi Azikiwe, Sam Mbakwe, Akanu Ibiam among others.

On his part, the APGA Chairman for Orumba-North, Barrister Obinna Ikwueto and his Orumba-South counterparts, Mr. Oliver Thambo said they were happy to receive the wife of their late leader, who said they were interested in the welfare of the Igbo.
