Bianca Ojukwu and Ojukwu’s children in disagreement over her plans for run senatorial seat


Siblings of Dame Bianca Ojukwu, widow of late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu- Ojukwu, have berated some of the children of the former Biafran leader for opposing Bianca’s senatorial ambition.

Bianca Ojukwu is currently seeking the ticket of the All Progressives Grand Alliance to represent Anambra South Senatorial District in the Senate.

But some of her late husband’s older children have vowed to oppose her candidacy, should she emerge as APGA’s flag bearer for the senatorial election.

Some members of the Ojukwu family, including Dr. Ike Ojukwu, Emeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu Jnr., and Chief Debe Odumegwu- Ojukwu, reportedly noted that it would not be proper to allow a woman from Ngwo, in Enugu State, to represent Anambra South Senatorial District.

Bianca Ojukwu hails from Ngwo town, in Enugu State, but was married in Nnewi, Anambra State.

Among other reasons they advanced for opposing her senatorial ambition, the late Biafran warlord’s children argued that Bianca could, in the future, marry a man from another state.

They also cast doubts on her marriage to the late Ikemba, noting that she was not one of their own.

However, Bianca’s siblings have responded to the attack on their sister.

Speaking on behalf of the family of the late C. C. Onoh, (Bianca’s father), Bianca’s brother, Dr Josef Umunnakwe Onoh, said Ojukwu’s children were ignorant of the Nigerian laws.

Onoh also dismissed the Ojukwu children’s claims that the marriage between their father and Bianca was not contracted in the proper procedure.

Bianca’s brother insisted that the opposition from Ojukwu’s children would not stop Bianca from winning the election.


  1. Seriously the ikemba children are not serious of all what they are saying the queen has all it take to lead so I highly supported her dreams move up Bianca , Bianca is the only wise one in the ikemba home , today the first son of ikemba has sold the respect of his life to buhari and apc so no hope for them now unless they plead to us the Igbo whom made their father great leader

  2. Ojukwu children are not serious.Bianca Ojukwu is by marriage an indigene of Nnewi and she has the right to contest for senatorial post to represent Nnewi South Senatorial District in the senate under the platform of APGA which was the party that late Ikemba formed which he held dearly before his demise.The children of Ojukwu should appreciate Bianca for having the mind in trying to sustain the legacies which the late Ikemba of Nnewi left behind.Why are they against the intention of this young lady in wanting to contest for senatorial position?They are not talking.
