Bianca Ojukwu desire to contest for senatorial seat and the igbos discriminatory act

Bianca Onoh Ojukwu, the widow of the late Ikemba Odimegwu
Ojukwu wants to contest for a Senatorial seat in Anambra state,
where she’s resident and married but some Anambra
people say she can not. They said she’s from Enugu, therefore
she should go back to her home state to contest. It is indeed sad
that it is one of Ojukwu’s sons that are leading this protest against
Bianca. Telling her she can’t come from Enugu to represent
Anambra state at the Senate.
For over 48 hours now after this news broke, I have been
expecting that Dr. John Nwodo, the President-General of the Igbo
social-cultural group, the Ohanaeze Ndigbo would have issued a
statement condemning such ridiculous attack on Bianca Onoh.
Unfortunately, mum has been the word from the Ohanaeze Ndigbo
group. Yet, this is the folks running around the country preaching
about restructuring.
How can an Igbo woman be asked not to contest in a state her
husband is from and where she’s living just because she’s from a
neighboring Igbo state? Yet, Igbos are commissioners, members of
state and national Assemblies in other states outside Igbo land.
I am yet to hear IPOB issue a press release like they use to do on
every issue condemning this aching drift and sad development. It’s
the same way one Igbo state will sack civil servants because they
are from another Igbo state. A lot of this people are bloody
hypocrites. All they do is play politics with everything.
Sometimes, when I see some of this ethnic and regional Lords
pontificate and grandstand about how they are for the interest of
their region, I laugh. These folks are a bunch of jesters. I expect
that there would have been an uproar from prominent Igbo leaders
condemning this attack on Bianca. Unfortunately, nothing.

Is it right for Federal Government to dialogue and compensate killer herdsmen and bandits?
