ENUGU—WIFE of late former Biafran leader, Mrs Bianca Ojukwu, yesterday expressed disappointment with the apex Igbo social cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo,  over its inability to pay condolence visit to the family of the late Igbo leader since his demise.

Bianca made her feelings known when the Conference of Democratic Scholars, CODES, and members of Ohanaeze Ndigbo visited her in Enugu to inform her that a colloquim on the Ahiara Declaration in memory of Dim Chukwemeka Ojukwu would take place at Ahiara Mbaise, Imo State, on  February 17, 2012.

She said it was also unfortunate that Ohanaeze also failed to visit her husband while he was in a London Hospital, despite the fact that he was their member.

On the Ahiara Declaration Document, she disclosed that it did not need to be upgraded or refreshed, insisting that it had continued to remain as fresh as it was in 1967.

According to the former Beauty Queen, the document was for determination of hope not just for the Biafra but also for the black man anywhere in the world.

The document, she added, would be useful for any government that wanted to succeed and impact positively on the lives of the people. Bianca therefore described the proposed colloquium as a laudable development.

Earlier, the leader of the delegation, Prof Uzodinma Nwala had told Bianca that the forthcoming event was one of the ways they felt they could pay tribute to their late leader.
