Bianca Ojukwu, Osodieme Obiano

The former First Lady of Anambra State, Ebele Obiano, has tendered an apology to the newly sworn-in Governor of the state, Charles Soludo, following the incident between her and Bianca Ojukwu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.

Kemifilani reported that during Soloudo’s swearing in last week, Ebele and Bianca engaged in a physicall altercation.

According to viral videos on social media, Bianca slapped Ebele who had allegedly attacked her while the swearing ceremony was ongoing.

In a statement, Ebele, tendering an apology, stated that there was no justification for the public embarrassment that happened on the day.

“Those who know me can testify that before and throughout my eight years as the First Lady of State, I pursued peace, promoted philanthropic gestures which empowered many of our less privileged people. No excuse can therefore be tenable as justification for such public embarrassment, no matter the height of provocation.

“Equally, I wish to extend the same apology to all the important dignitaries, the people of Anambra State, as well as the entire Ndigbo for that unintended embarrassment at the occasion,” she was quoted by Punch as saying.

Meanwhile, a group, Justice and Accountability For All, has asked Bianca to tender an apology for her display during the altercation she had with Ebele.

The group made this known in a statement signed by its National Coordinator and Secretary, Mr John Ifeanyi and Camela Jude.

The statement read, “The wife of Ikemba should be virtuous; she should possess the highest mentality of a mother of Ndigbo nation, a role model to young and old; she should be the worthiest example of womanhood, commanding respect, honour and dignity in private and public places, something larger than life image of her husband, the legend. But no, not Bianca.

“Why should a wife of the great Ikemba be so proud of her despicable action when she disrespected Ndigbo and friends of Ndigbo to the point of celebrating the incident on a live TV interview? No. Something must be definitely wrong.

“If Bianca has any modicum of decorum and decency at all, she should come out openly and apologize to former Governors of Anambra State, Osodieme, Soludo, Anambra and Nigeria. Bianca’s action is a moral tragedy. We condemn it and ask that elders of Ndigbo should call her to order.”
