The widow of the late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Bianca Ojukwu, on Thursday posted a statement on her Facebook page, describing the inauguration of the new Governor of Anambra state, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo as a day to rejoice as it is a liberation day.
She said, “It’s Liberation Day, and today we sing the Redemption Song. Anambra will be better!”
Ojukwu expressed her heartfelt joy as she said this period is “the long awaited return to the promised land,” calling the day “a day that reaffirms the age long truth that no-one holds the stage forever.
“I used to wonder….But now I know.
“Now I know just how those Israelites felt on the day they took those tentative first steps out of the land of Egypt….Just the sheer excitement and anticipation of liberation, the long awaited return to the promised land must have kept them awake through that night.
“This is the Day the Lord has made…a day that reaffirms the age long truth that no-one holds the stage forever. I thank the Almighty for keeping us all alive to witness this day.
“To Him be the glory.
“It was long in coming, but it’s finally here.
“A more dynamic and progressive Anambra is achievable.
“Yes indeed….WE ARE THE BARRACKS!” she wrote.
