Ikemba Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, who died on November 26, 2011, will be remembered on Dec. 10.
Nov. 4 would have been his 81st birthday. Ndigbo throughout the world honour the former leader of Biafra through various programmes on each anniversary of his birth or death.
The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has announced the shift in date of “Ojukwu Day” from Nov. 26 to Dec. 10. It said it was due to the absence of Ojukwu’s widow Bianca, Nigeria’s ambassador to Spain.
When the Day comes finally, it may be an opportunity for Ndigbo to take a stand on the 2015 elections. Will they support Goodluck Jonathan as usual? What is their place in the APC? What is happening to APGA that lives on Ojukwu’s spirit? Peter Obi may be asked questions: he has betrayed the party.
