News Report: Mrs. Ojukwu Is First Beneficiary Of Ojukwu/Jonathan Pact

Chief And Mrs. Ojukwu
Mrs. Bianca Odumegwu-Ojukwu, wife of former Biafra leader and national leader of All Progressives Grand Alliance(APGA), Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu is the first beneficiary of the Ojukwu/Jonathan political pact. Mrs. Ojukwu was recently appointed a senior special assistant to the President on Diaspora Affairs.

chidi opara reports have been reporting a secret political pact between the Nigerian President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and Chief Ojukwu, whose main article is that APGA would not present a presidential candidate in the 2011 election and would support the President's candidacy. One of the President's loyalists, Professor Dora Akunyili was recently asked to resign here ministerial appointment in the Jonathan administration, she did and was "seconded" to APGA to monitor compliance. Akunyili is presently vying for a senatorial seat in Anambra state under APGA.

Contacts in the Goodluck Jonathan campaign organization informed us that "we are happy with the level of cooperation so far from Ojukwu's people".

A highly placed APGA insider when contacted expreesed disappointment that "the first fruit of our labour" would go first to "a passive member". Another insider however advised patience, saying, "more appointments will surely come".

chidi opara reports learnt that there is likelihood of Mrs. Ojukwu being elevated to ministerial level if the President is re-elected.

A citizen reporter in Nnewi, Ojukwu's hometown, reported that some of Ojukwu's kinsmen in Umudim Nnewi view the timing of the appointment as inappropriate in view of the serious health challenges the ex Biafra leader is currently grappling with.
