"I saw Ojukwu through bad times"-Bianca

Bianca with late Ojukwu
Bianca, wife of the late Chief Emeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, says she is grateful to God to have been able to see her husband through “his very bad times and life challenges”.

She spoke in London when she received Dr Dalhatu Tafida, the Nigerian High Commissioner to the UK, who led senior officials of the mission on a condolence visit to the family.

“Like other times, I will always say I have seen him through very bad times.’

“When the doctors would tell us he wouldn’t make it to morning, but he would always struggle and in the morning he would still be there. But this time, he didn’t struggle; he went peacefully.” she said

Recalling Ojukwu’s last days, Bianca said he had just been discharged from the hospital and was doing very well.

“I have never seen him look so well. He was interactive, very alert and aware, and we will sing him songs, cracked jokes.

“Very surprisingly, his situation which we thought had improved remarkably, suddenly took a turn for the worse.

“I remember I was saying to him, it is getting very cold in this country and we must go home. Are we going to go home? He would nod very emphatically, but he never did make it home.

Ojukwu is a man Nigerians will live to remember,his death is really an end of an era..
