Following the denial of the Anambra South senatorial ticket to Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu’s widow, Bianca by the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA); the Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign States of Biafra (MASSOB) has given a 7 day ultimatum to the leadership of the party to remove all images of the late Biafran leader from its billboards and other campaign materials or face its wrath.

MASSOB zonal leaders from Abia South, Abia Central and Abia North, Mazi Fred Onyenaucheya, Chief Obi Anyaogu and Pastor Evans Okoronkwo, respectively, as well as Iron Lady of Biafra, Mrs Comfort Ogbuokiri, said the denial of the senatorial ticket to Bianca amounts to humiliation and insult to the late Biafran leader.

MASSOB insisted that as Ojukwu’s wife, Bianca deserves an automatic senatorial ticket from APGA as a result of her husband’s selfless contributions to the party and Ndigbo.

APGA Gets 7 Day Ultimatum To Remove Ojukwu’s Pictures From Campaign Materials

“It is an insult on Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu for APGA to deny his wife a senatorial ticket. APGA has humiliated Ojukwu. Therefore, we are giving a 7 day ultimatum to the party to remove Ojukwu’s images from their billboards and other campaign materials or face our wrath. They have been using Ojukwu’s images to campaign and win elections, but denied his widow a senatorial ticket. Ojukwu’s name is good for them to pass election while his widow is not good to fly the APGA senatorial ticket. Now, they have denied his widow a senatorial ticket, they should detach his images from their party and allow him to rest in peace. Senator Victor Umeh was given automatic ticket as the APGA senatorial candidate for Anambra Central, what’s wrong in giving the Anambra South senatorial ticket to Bianca Ojukwu as a mark of respect for Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu who lived his life for Ndigbo?

“Ojukwu is the same with his wife, there is no difference between them. Bianca represents Ojukwu. You cannot pretend to respect Ojukwu while disrespecting his widow, Bianca. BIM is saddened with the ill treatment meted out to Bianca by APGA. This is why we have given them 7 days to detach Ojukwu’s images from their party. We will conduct such humiliation on the family of our revered leader.”

MASSOB warned APGA should to stop parading itself as an Igbo party, stressing that no Igbo party would disrespect Ojukwu as APGA had done.

“What APGA did in denying Bianca the Anambra South senatorial ticket amounts to spitting on Ojukwu’s grave. No sensible Igbo man or party would show such disrespect to Ojukwu as APGA has done. This shows that that APGA is not an Igbo party as it claims. APGA should stop parading itself as an Igbo party.”

    I said million times over that people like Victor Umeh,an unknown quantity can’t be using Ojukwu’s name and image to recreate himself without paying for it. They are all dangerous hypocrite, himself Umeh,always assuming himself larger than life after paying for awards here and there to fill the social vacuum deep in him.They will not say five words without mentioning Ojukwu’s name.It is time to practice what they preach and they all hid their faces and pretend they don’t know APGA must ,for Ojukwu’s sake seed the ticket unopposed to Bianca.Instead,they choose this political yoke and burden called Ukachukwu,who has been contesting for Senate shamelessly since 1999,without winning. Is Senate for Ukachukwu alone? He has no pedigree and he is the worst party man who erroneously believe winning election and party primaries are for those who influence highest with illicit money. I curse that ticket and whoever is holding it against Bianca will loose this election. Yes! Like always,since Andy Uba is contesting because I know Ukachukwu’s traducers are holding the ticket in APC and PDP,and none of their dream in APGA will succeed. I challenge Victor Umeh,Obiano,the party chairman and other wicked party stakeholders to stop pretending.If charlatan Victor Umeh can get the ticket unopposed and automatically, Bianca deserve it for her contribution to the party over the years and for Ojukwu’s sake. Tinubu’s wife is going to Senate the third time unopposed, that respect for women and for those who prepared the platform before you come inn.
