Nigeria’s former Ambassador to Spain, Chief Mrs. Bianca Ojukwu, who is also the widow of former Biafran warlord, Odumegwu Ojukwu,has advised those championing the calls for the boycott of the Anambra governorship elections to desist or bear the consequnces.
She asked them to begin such calls in their home states.
Daily Trust reports that she made the statement while speaking during the inauguration of the Akpokuodike Fan Club, in Awka,Anambra State.
Mrs. Ojukwu complained about the near absence of Federal Government presence in the state in terms of infrastructure, insisting that APGA remained the voice of Ndigbo and should therefore be supported.

She described the job of members of the club as important, saying that APGA and its leadership remained a replica and model of late Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu’s dream of a region where excellence prevailed.
She further emphasized the need for the dream of the party to be upheld for posterity, arguing that Obiano should be returned for a second term to sustain the dividends of good governance in the state.
Earlier, the President of Akpokuodike Fan Club, Barrister Chika Ekwunugo, noted that their base covered the 177 communities in the state with a target of 500 ambassadors in each town before the end of September.
He said their drive was engineered by the governor’s approach to governance, which had translated to positive revolution in the state.
