By Kelechi Eke
The widow of the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Dame Bianca Ojukwu, today described the inauguration of Prof Chukwuma Soludo as the governor of Anambra State as “Liberation Day.”
The widow of late Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu, in a statement posted to her Facebook page, today Thursday, said, “It’s Liberation Day, and today we sing the Redemption Song. Anambra will be better!”
According to her, the inauguration of the new governor is “the long awaited return to the promised land.”
Dame Ojukwu said the inauguration day is “a day that reaffirms the age long truth that no-one holds the stage forever.”
“I used to wonder….But now I know.
“Now I know just how those Israelites felt on the day they took those tentative first steps out of the land of Egypt….Just the sheer excitement and anticipation of liberation, the long awaited return to the promised land must have kept them awake through that night.
“This is the Day the Lord has made…a day that reaffirms the age long truth that no-one holds the stage forever. I thank the Almighty for keeping us all alive to witness this day.
“To Him be the glory.
“It was long in coming, but it’s finally here…
“A more dynamic and progressive Anambra is achievable.
“Yes indeed….WE ARE THE BARRACKS!” she wrote.
NewsOrient reported earlier that Bianca Ojukwu and former Anambra State First Lady, Ebelechukwu Obiano, fought physically at the inauguration ceremony of Prof Charles Soludo as the new governor of Anambra State, a ceremony that formally marked the tenure of former Governor Willy Obiano.
The new state governor, Prof Charles Soludo, while appologising to all for the development hinted that the fight may be linked to yet-to-be revealed “personal misunderstanding” between Bianca and Ebelechukwu.”
