Bianca Ojukwu in trouble as MASSOB faction disowns her endorsement


The Uchenna Madu-led faction of the Movement for Actualization of the Sovereign state of Biafra (MASSOB) has denied endorsing Bianca Ojukwu for the Senate in 2019.


The group was reacting to Bianca’s endorsement by the Ralph Uwazuruike-led faction.

Bianca hopes to contest for the Anambra South seat on the platform of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

The group said Uwazuruike, who reportedly declared support for Bianca, is not the leader of MASSOB, and cannot represent the group, whose primary objective is for Biafra actualization and restoration.

A statement by Madu said: “The leadership of MASSOB dissociates itself from the falsehood that it is supporting the senatorial ambition of Iyom Bianca Ojukwu.

“As the foremost Biafran self-determination movement, MASSOB can never allow its name, integrity and public trust to be dragged into the disgraceful mud of Nigeria politics.

“We have never met or consulted with Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu’s widow on her senatorial ambition, which is being sponsored by enemies of Ndigbo.

“Political representation of Ndigbo is not about compensation, personal likeness or favour. Bianca Ojukwu can never be compensated with Igbo political representation in Abuja because of Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.

“Bianca Ojukwu is not Ojukwu whose eloquent, radical and selfless Igbo interest has no boundary. You can’t equate Bianca with Ojukwu. Igbo political representation is for Igbo men with eloquent, radical, fearless and Igbotic tendencies.

“Adding Bianca Ojukwu to the 15 Igbo senators in Abuja will never bring any positive or progressive change to Ndigbo.”

Madu added that what the Igbo race needs are vibrant, radical, people-oriented fighters to revive and re-establish its true political nature.
