Anambra South Senatorial ambition and Petiness: Ojukwu’s Children Vow Not to Support Bianca's Senate Ambition


www.odogwublog.com reports that envy and pettiness has crept into the ambition for senatorial run by Anambra South contenders with people of Nnewi talking childishly or so? 

 The senatorial ambition of the wife of the late Biafra warlord, Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu yesterday faced a major setback as some members of the family vowed not to support her even if she emerges the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the 2019 general election.


Speaking with journalists in an interview, Dr. Ike Ojukwu, who is one of the directors of Ojukwu Transport Company Limited, believes that it will be a let down to allow a woman from Ngwo in Enugu State to represent Anambra South senatorial district where you have several prominent people in the Senate.

Ojukwu asked: "Is she from Nnewi? She is from Ngwo in Enugu State. If you ask me, I would prefer someone who is a son of the soil, and because I come from Nnewi, I would like an Nnewi indigene to represent us."

According to Emeka Odimegwu Ojukwu (jnr), "she is apparently coming out under APGA and that is APGA's business. They can decide on whoever they want to bring out it is really, that should not be my business as far as I am concerned but I do find it curious that you want somebody from Enugu State to come and represent us at Anambra South.

Further, Ojukwu said: "A young woman who was supposedly married to my father who is late. A young woman who could remarry tomorrow maybe from Abia State or later from Sokoto State. And you want her to come and represent us. I wonder if there are no other people in Anambra South that can represent us.

"Has anybody asked Odimegwu household whether we believe in her to represent us? This is a woman we don’t interact with. She doesn’t talk to us. She can’t cross into our properties. She can’t cross our gate in the village. She doesn’t associate with the members of the family.

"There are certain questions that would have been asked before moving in that particular direction. Like I said, APGA is free to field whoever they want to field. And I know that APC is trying to field a very credible candidate and when we get to the field of justice we will see what happens," Ojukwu added.

Also speaking, a legal practitioner Chief Debe Odimegwu Ojukwu, who is also a member of the Ojukwu family, when asked if Bianca was legally married to his father late Dim Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu, said If you ask me as a lawyer, I would say no. why I said no is that there are so many marriages, even when you look at Nollywood, there are many marriages everyday but that does not make it legal.

"Why I am arguing this is because there was a woman my father married in a court not my even mother, and that marriage was never nullified, and my training as a lawyer tells me that when there is a subsisting marriage, subsequent marriage or attempt at marriage becomes null and void."
