Biafra Group Speaks On Bianca Ojukwu’s Defeat In Anambra Senatorial Contest
Bianca Ojukwu’s Defeat Justifies Ojukwu’s Cause Says MASSOB
The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) led by Uchenna Madu, has reacted to the defeat of Bianca Ojukwu, wife of the late Igbo leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, who was contesting for Anambra South Senatorial zone.
According to the group, Bianca’s defeat has justified Late Ojukwu’s stand on the Biafra course. Adding that it expected the widow to steer clear from politics and stick to the course championed by her husband while alive which according to the group was targeted at getting justice for the marginalised Igbo nation.
Naija News recalls that Bianca who was seeking for the Anambra South Senatorial zone’s ticket for the 2019 general election with other aspirants under the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) lost to a business mogul, Prince Nicholas Ukachukwu.
In a statement issued by its National Director of Information, Edeson Samuel, MASSOB wondered why some persons who reportedly expressed their reservations about the primaries in which she lost did not seem to be bothered about the uneasy calm in the Imo State’s chapter of the party.
This was even as MASSOB has disassociated itself from certain media reports which was reportedly issued by a pro-Biafra group (name withheld) which reportedly insisted that the late Igbo leader’s wife should be considered for the ticket.
