Bianca Ojukwu calls for proper recognition to Igbo fallen heroes


Widow of the late Igbo leader, Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu, Bianca, says Igbo fallen heroes are not properly honored.

She said such personalities should be immortalized in such a way that would reflect their ideals and philosophies.

Bianca expressed this in a funeral tribute to a former President General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Dozie Ikedife in Nnewi, Anambra State.

While calling for proper immortalization of Ikedife, Bianca asked the Ndigbo to brace for such occasions by working out good immortalization schemes for their people.

She described Ikedife as an extraordinary man whom she said spent time with her late husband, Ojukwu, to tackle issues that promoted Igbo cause.

Ikedife died on December 11, 2018, and was buried the next day according to his wish.

His family organized a day of tributes for him at the weekend.
