Bianca Ojukwu Raises Alarm, Says FG, State Govts Implementing Grand Plot Against Igbos


The widow of the late Igbo leader Odumegwu Ojukwu, Bianca Ojukwu, has alleged that the federal and some state governments were frustrating the Igbo in their various businesses in parts of the country.

Ojukwu, who spoke on the heels of the recent demolition of property and business places owned by the Igbo in Lagos State, said there had been a decades-old grand scheme and conspiracy to isolate the Igbo from the mainstream of Nigeria’s affairs, particularly in the governance of the country.

The former Nigerian ambassador to Spain said: “The Igbo are excluded, citing sensitive Federal Government projects and infrastructure. Igbo youths are marginalised in employment schemes in federal ministries, departments and agencies, as well as in admission policies of federal universities, etc.”

Notwithstanding, she urged Igbo youths to remain creative, continue to be hardworking and diligent, pursue education with uncommon zeal and shun crime and social vices.

She also lamented Nigeria’s economic, social, political, security and judicial instability.

She said the country has become extremely difficult to live in and dangerous economically, socio-politically, and regarding security and judicial flux.

Her words: “Nigerians have long ceased to look up to their governments for solid policies and programmes, actions and decisions that will change their fortune, and build a great nation; rather, they have come to accept their governments as opportunistic platforms for the leaders’ enrichment of themselves, their families and for parochial sectional agenda.

Hence, while those in government live in scandalous luxury, the Nigerian masses have been choked to bare existence by hostile economic and social situations, as the incapacitation of our successive governments has degenerated to a level it can neither provide enough for Nigerians at present nor secure the future of Nigeria which is the country’s youths.

“In addition to the harsh economic realities briefly mentioned above, Nigeria is also a country bedevilled by all manner of evils and societal ills which the government has proved impotent to control, such as; extreme insecurity, banditry, cultism, kidnapping, ritual killings, human and organ trafficking, dishonesty, etc. Indeed, the degenerate nature and levels of the nation’s ills are so horrifying that any manner of evil one does not see in Nigeria may possibly not exist anywhere else in the world.”
