Bianca Ojukwu: Igbo Fallen Heroes Not Properly Honoured
Bianca Ojukwu, wife of late Biafran warlord Odumegwu Ojukwu has stated that Igbo fallen heroes not properly honoured. In her funeral tribute to a former President General of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Dozie Ikedife in Nnewi, Anambra State, the former beauty queen said such personalities should be immortalised in such a way that would reflect their ideals and philosophies.
Bianca Ojukwu who maintained that Igbo fallen heroes not properly honoured in her speech, also called on Ndigbo to brace for such occasions by working out good immortalisation schemes for their people. She said;
“It has always been an issue on how to immortalise great men, especially of Igbo extraction. I think individuals; organisations and institutions should sit down and think of enduring monument for such great people.Such monument should not just be in making statutes to remember the dead.
“It should involve setting up of projects that show the person’s philosophies, ideologies and all the things he believed in life. Such beliefs, philosophies, ideologies should have a place they are discussed, espoused, promoted and investigated.”
