After weeks of shock over the defection of Chief Peter Obi to the Peoples Demo?cratic Party (PDP), Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu?s widow, Bianca, has lambasted the former governor of Anam?bra State for his actions.
Bianca, who is Nigeria?s Ambassador to Spain, had told Daily Sun on the eve of the day Obi dumped the All Progres?sives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the PDP that the ex-governor would never leave the party believed to be the rallying point for the Igbo because of the vow he made before Ojukwu. Thus when Obi dumped APGA, Bianca was shocked beyond words, as the former governor had reas?sured her over time that he would remain in APGA and help to sustain the party.
As he left, Obi, oblivious of the ?injury? he had caused Bianca, decided to look for an opportunity to placate her and found one last Friday, October 17, which, how?ever, turned to be a shocker also for him.
Obi had trailed Bianca to the Nether?lands where she was being honoured by The Voice Newspaper, as the Outstand?ing Ambassador of Africa, but Bianca declined all the entreaties made by Obi at the event.
The organisers of the award had penciled down Obi to present the award to Bianca but when it became obvious that the ambassador had made up her mind never to have anything to do with him, they quickly drafted an ambassador from the country to do the presentation.
In this exclusive interview with Daily Sun, Bianca looked at the relationship between the late leader of APGA, Ikemba Nnewi, saying Obi had betrayed him, APGA and Ndigbo, even when he was the greatest beneficiary of Ojukwu and APGA influence in Igbo land.
She, therefore, described Obi?s defec?tion to the PDP, as a ?betrayal and unimaginable breach of trust,? saying though his exit was a big loss to the party, APGA, nevertheless, would continue to hit successes without him.
