‘No rift between Osodieme, Bianca Ojukwu’

AGAINST speculations from some sources and social media, there is no rift between the Wife of Governor of Anambra State and Founder of Caring Family Enhancement (CAFÉ) initiative, Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano and the wife of the deceased father figure of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Amb. Bianca Ojukwu.

  This is contrary to insinuation of an imminent fight-to-finish between the two Anambra amazons.

  Deputy Chief Press Secretary to  Gov. Willie Obiano, Emeka Ozumba, has dismissed the rumours, stating in a press release that those behind it seek to heat up the polity.

  According to Ozumba, the governor’s wife never made any comment against – let alone invoking “thunder to fire” Mrs. Ojukwu.

  He noted that Osodieme cannot descend to such graceless level because of the love and respect which both she and her husband, Gov. Obiano have for the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, who the governor immortalised his name by renaming Anambra State University after him.

  Ozumba’s words: “Dr. Mrs. Obiano is proud of the tremendous support she has given her husband over the years to immortalise Dim Ojukwu. One of the remarkable things Governor Obiano has done is to ensure that Ojukwu’s place in history is secure, is signing into law the bill changing the name of the Anambra State University to Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University.

Of course, the annual public lecture at the university in honour of the great APGA leader has the imprimatur of the Obianos. Dim Ojukwu will always live in their hearts as an iconographic figure. Legendary leaders like Ojukwu do not die.

The attention of the Office of the Governor of Anambra State has been drawn to a spurious statement on the social media ascribed to Dr. Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano, using graceless language on Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, wife of the late great leader of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Eze Igbo Gburugburu.

We would like to inform the public that Dr. Mrs Obiano never made such a statement either in public or in private. She cannot, in any circumstance, make a statement like this, marked by a total lack of decorum and elegance.

Those who forged the statement are so unintelligent that they could not state whether the so-called reaction by Dr. Mrs. Obiano was in a news release or an interview, nor could they state the place where she ostensibly made the statement or the day.

The forgery is the work of political con artists who operate at the basest level possible. They work in cahoots with shadowy characters that are not happy at the phenomenal progress which Anambra State has recorded in various areas in recent years, leading the whole country in such fields as financial resource management, security, education, peace and stability, among others.

 It is pure disinformation to allege that the Anambra State Government under Governor Willie Obiano has been paying Mrs. Ojukwu N20m monthly. It is also a spurious claim to allege that Governor Obiano has built a house for her in Nnewi.

What the state administration has done to Ambassador Ojukwu is to extend courtesies which should be accorded the wife of the APGA leader. For instance, she has for years been a member of APGA Board of Trustees.

She remains so to this day, despite her tantrums against the party. Dr. Mrs Obiano is, like her husband, committed to harmony and social progress in Anambra State. She is not held hostage by the past or by political cleavages.

She takes her Christian faith seriously, and so bears no grudges or animosity towards anyone or group. Far from ever associated with a malediction, the wife of Anambra governor is famous for her belief in the values of forgiveness and reconciliation.

Therefore, she is not the kind of person who can invoke “thunder to fire” any creature of God, however disappointed she may be with the person.”

  Ozumba further stated that as the legendry pride of the Igbo race, late Dim Ojukwu will forever live dearly in the hearts of Gov. Obiano and his wife, who will never allow mischief makers to square them up with Ojukwu’s wife.
