The inauguration ceremony of the new governor of Anambra State, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo, on Thursday was momentarily marred by a mild drama which ensued when the very immediate past first lady of the state, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano, and former Nigerian Ambassador to Spain, Mrs Bianca Ojukwu, fought each other to the consternation of dignitaries.

Although there had not been any love lost between the two powerful women in Anambra State in the last four years and the frosty relationship worsened during the build up to the November 2021 governorship election in the state with Banca Ojukwu allegedly wishing her late husband's party, All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), the platform on which Soludo contested for the seat, a defeat at the poll.

But The Daily Crucible gathered that what touched off the brawl between the duo at the inauguration ground was the late arrival of Obiano's wife to the venue who on sighting Bianca seated in one of the places designated for the VIPs, soon walked up to her.

Ebelechukwu Obiano, was alleged to have expressed shock that Bianca, an ex - beauty queen and daughter of former governor C.C. Onoh, could attend the inauguration without qualms, having wished Obiano's candidate and APGA failure at the poll.

Sources said that the ex - first lady leaned towards the direction of Bianca, looked the former Ambassador on the face and allegedly blurted out in Igbo,"Echem isi n’anyi ga e loosu the election…" (I thought you said and boasted that we would lose the election?) and as she left her presence, an infuriated Bianca calmly called Obiano's wife back and when the unsuspecting outgone first lady turned, Ojukwu's wife allegedly slapped her.

This, it was learnt further, sets - off a feud of fisticuffs and ruffling of head ties/geles between the two, who turned the inauguration arena into an atmosphere of commotion for some minutes and normalcy did not return according to sources, until security personnel and some of the dignitaries, including former governor Peter Obi, intervened to arrest what few of the guests described as a "show of shame."

However, Soludo and his Deputy, Onyekachi Ibezim were sworn in by the state's Chief Judge, Justice Onochie Anyachebelu, at exactly 10.55am.

Meanwhile, Stella Oduah, the Senator representing Anambra North has condemned what she described as unwarranted attack on the widow of late Ikemba Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu by Willy Obiano's wife, Ebelechukwu, describing it as indecorous and unwarranted.

The Senator also decried the labelling of hardworking woman like Bianca with nasty names such as "ashawo," by Obiano's wife, lamenting that what millions of people witnessed at governor Soludo's Inauguration " is utterly disgraceful, unfortunate, crude and should never be emulated by the millions of our young girls and women."

 She said: “I hereby condemn in strong terms, this unwarranted attack against the wife of an illustrious son and our very own Ikemba. I wish to add that the act exhibited by the former first lady was indecorous and unbecoming of a woman who had acted as a mother of the state and even desirous of serving in other capacities. 

"More condemnable is even the gutter and vulgar language used by Mrs Obiano to describe her fellow woman, who is even a widow. I have always held the view that it is only weak minds that label hardworking women like Bianca with nasty names such as "ashawo."

"What the world witnessed today at the swearing-in ceremony is utterly disgraceful, unfortunate, crude and should never be emulated by the millions of our young girls and women who often look up to public figures with respect to how they conduct themselves.”
