The wife of the late leader of Biafra, Dim Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, Bianca Ojukwu, has an army of billionaires ready to fund her Senatorial campaign, it has been revealed.
Speaking on her powerful backers, a former Governor of Imo state, Chief Ikedi Ohakim said that no less than 15 Billionaires have expressed readiness to bankroll the first lady of Biafra and her Senatorial ambitions.
Ohakim was speaking at Ekwulobia in the Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State during a stakeholders’ meeting of the All Progressives Grand Alliance in the Anambra South Senatorial district.
There, he warned anyone who wanted to stand against Bianca Ojukwu to reconsider this move as the Igbo would not stand by and watch the wife of their leader get outdone by anyone.
“Those who are contesting the poll with the wife of our leader may have the money and wherewithal to muzzle down Bianca but they don’t have the same integrity.” Ohakim said.
“Bianca Ojukwu is not an ordinary human being, she is a spirit. She has double-barreled identity and double-barreled legacy.
“We have mobilised 15 Igbo billionaires to sponsor her ambition and over 25,000 youths to work for her.” he added
He also said: “The people of Imo, Abia, Ebonyi, Enugu, have asked me to beg you (Anambra) to accomplish this mission and project in memory of our great leader, Dim Chkwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu.
“Ojukwu sacrificed his Oxford education, his personal comfort, his father’s wealth to save the Igbo race at the most auspicious time”.
On her part, Bianca Ojukwu said that her job as a Senator would be to give the Igbo people a voice in the National Assembly, a dream her late husband set out to achieve.
She said: “APGA and Igbo interests run in my veins and blood; and I have a kindred obligation to defend it and that’s why I’m going to the Senate. The Ojukwu dream must not die. We can’t abandon Ojukwu.”
