MAURICE OKAFOR writes that Monday, June 10, 2019 inauguration date of the new 24 members of the 7th Enugu state House of Assembly was attended by several dignitaries from various parts of the state but one dignitary was cynosure of all eyes and attracted public attention more than the celebrants.
She is Ambassador Mrs Bianca Ojukwu[Nee Onoh], the wife of ex- Biafra war lord, late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, and daughter of late Chief C. C. Onoh, governor of old Anambra state.
Added to her political exploits as a 2019 aspirant to Anambra South Senatorial seat, which eventually was won by Senator Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah, the Chief Executive of Capitol Oil cum Publisher, ‘THE AUTHORITY’ Newspaper.
Obviously, her intimidating background and profile was not the major factor that figured out Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu in the crowd from other dignitaries but her glamorous beauty and rare public appearance, especially in Enugu, her home state. It would be recalled that Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, as a spinster Miss Bianca Onoh, was crowned and soared as Nigeria’s most beautiful girl.
Probably, a reflection of her beauty still entices the members of the public. ‘The AUTHORITY South East observed that both her kinsmen, friends and several other groups, clustered around her with a common demand to pose for a photograph with her, even as she was dressed in a traditional regalia.
In her humane and simple nature, she did not refuse any group until security personnel and staff in charge of locking up the House of assembly chambers came up with complaints that the series of photography session with Bianca Ojukwu, has constituted serious delay in closing the chambers.
In a brief chat with news men, Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu, said she made out time to attend the inauguration ceremony because one of his brothers, Hon Ibekaku Onoh was among the newly elected state legislators, who were inaugurated.
