Emeka Ojukwu, son of the late Igbo leader, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, has indicated interest to contest the governorship seat of Anambra State in 2021.
In a statement on Thursday, he said he was contesting the governorship of the state on the platform of the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
In the statement, he slammed his father’s widow, Bianca Ojukwu, over her recent interview that the Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, could not be a replacement to late Ojukwu as APGA leader.
Bianca had in the interview criticised APGA leadership over plans to name Obiano the leader of the party, stating that Obiano knew little or nothing about the philosophy of the party.
But Ojukwu (Jnr) in the statement faulted Bianca’s comments.
He said, “I would have taken a pass on the insinuations, innuendos and outright falsehoods made in the (Bianca’s) interview. I find it exigent from the perspective of an insider, to present the truth so as to preserve and protect the ideals that my late father and mentor held sacred.
