Siblings of Dame Bianca Ojukwu, widow of late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu- Ojukwu, have berated some of the children of the former Biafran leader for opposing her (Bianca’s) senatorial ambition.

Bianca Ojukwu is currently seeking the ticket of the All Progressives Grand Alliance to represent Enugu South Senatorial District in the Senate.

But some of her late husband’s older children have vowed to oppose her candidacy, should she emerge as APGA’s standard bearer for the election.

Some members of the Ojukwu family, including Dr. Ike Ojukwu, Emeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu Jnr., and Chief Debe Odumegwu- Ojukwu, reportedly noted that it would not be proper to allow a woman from Ngwo, in Enugu State, to represent Anambra South Senatorial District.

Bianca Ojukwu hails from Ngwo town, in Enugu State, but was married in Nnewi, Anambra State.

Among other reasons they advanced for opposing her senatorial ambition, the late Biafran warlord’s children argued that Bianca could, in the future, marry a man from another state.

They also cast doubts on her marriage to the late Ikemba, noting that she was not one of their own.

However, Bianca’s siblings have responded to the attack on their sister.

Speaking on behalf of the family of the late C. C. Onoh, (Bianca’s father), Bianca’s brother, Dr Josef Umunnakwe Onoh, said Ojukwu’s children were ignorant of the Nigerian laws.

Onoh also dismissed the Ojukwu children’s claims that the marriage between their father and Bianca was not contracted in the proper procedure.

Bianca’s brother insisted that the opposition from Ojukwu’s children would not stop Bianca from winning the election.
