A highly unexpected fight between the wife of immediate past Anambra State governor, Mrs Ebele Obiano and the widow of Biafra leader, Chief Emeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Ambassador Bianca Ojukwu almost ruined the swearing in ceremony of the new Governor of Anambra State, Professor Chukwuma Soludo.
Mrs Obiano started the fight by taunting Bianca, a former beauty queen and ambassador of Nigeria to Spain. “You’re a bitch, you’re a bitch, I think you said we won’t be governor?”, Mrs. Obiano had told Binaca who was in her seat. Binaca was seated next to the new First Lady, Nonye Soludo.
But Bianca swiftly replied Ebele with a slap, and Mrs Obiano reacted by going for Bianca’s gele, pulling at it before security operatives and dignitaries rushed and separated them.
Meanwhile Obiano was seated looking straight at the podium where Professor Soludo was signing oath of office as Governor being guided by the state Chief Judge, Justice Anyachebelu.
Immediately Soludo walked down from the podium, Obiano quickly embraced and congratulated him, and, was driven away with his wife even before Soludo inspected the guard of honour mounted for him by the men of the state police command.
Obiano did not make any speech.
In his address Governor Soludo who pledged he would not disappoint people of state, but, would do the state proud.
Some of the dignitaries at the event include Prof. Pat Utomi, Sir Emeka Offor, Dr. A. B .C Ojiako, Archbishop Valerian Okeke, Sen. Uche Ekwunife, Sen. Victor Umeh, Speaker Anambra state House of Assembly, Hon. Uchenna Okafor, Hon. Ben Nwankwo, Igwe Chris Onyekwuluje, APGA national Chairman, Chief Victor Oye, Reps members Chinedu Obidigwe, Dozie Nwankwo and others.
