Anambra ElectionsNewsFight Between Mrs. Obiano and Mrs. Ojukwu at Soludo’s Swearing-in is “Shameful”- Emeka Ojukwu

AWKA — The otherwise peaceful and harmonious handover of the saddle of power from Obiano to Soludo encountered a hitch with physical engagement between Lady Bianca Odumegwu-Ojukwu and Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano the wife of the former governor of Anambra State. While the event was going on smoothly, suddenly Mrs. Obiano got up from her seat and walked to Lady Bianca and the next thing was near exchange of blows but for the timely intervention of people seated around.

Mrs. Obiano and Mrs. Ojukwu have been in some sort of competition for reasons best known to them, and when Bianca declared interest to contest for senate, Mrs. Obiano waged a formidable resistance against her senatorial ambition much so that Bianca could not secure APGA ticket. Ever since Lady Bianca has been on frontal attacks against APGA until recently she resumed her celebration of the exit of the Obianos from Anambra Seat of power while eulogizing APGA.

Prof. Soludo media has already issued a public apology for the incident. A statement signed by Joe Anatune, Head of Governor Soludo’s media reads in part, “Governor Chukwuma Charles Soludo hereby apologizes to all Anambra people, friends, and guests who attended his inauguration…for the breach of protocol… caused by improper communication… from a personal issue between the two parties involved”.

However, Chief Emeka Ojukwu Jnr in his reaction has described the incident as shameful. “This is a shame… no matter our justifiable reasons with either camp…what is wrong is wrong. Period”.

In other news, the governor Prof. Charles Soludo has assured Anambra people of his commitment to deliver on his agenda. He announced cancellation of all revenue contracts in the state and proposed that in about four weeks, a new system will be in place for all tax and tariff payers. He also avowed his commitment to conducting local government elections in Anambra State as well as mentioned his determination to build APGA into a formidable platform that mirrors and embodies the expectations of not just Igbos, but Africans from their polity.
