The newly inaugurated Governor of Anambra State, Chukwuma Soludo, has apologised to all Anambra people, friends, and guests who attended his inauguration for the momentary breach of protocol that happened during the event.
In a statement on Thursday, by his media office, Soludo, said the breach was caused by improper communication which arose from a personal issue between the two parties involved.
According to him, the breach which disrupted proceedings at the event happened after the wife of the former governor, Ebelechukwu Obiano, approached Mrs Bianca Ojukwu and muttered some words that led to fisticuffs.
‘Sadly, the fight took the shine off the main event of the day,’ the statement read in part.
Soludo further stated that steps were being taken to resolve the misunderstanding and restore the parties to their previous relationship.
‘Anambra State has over the years been known for a huge stock of social harmony, and the stock will increase substantially in the years ahead as part of the concerted effort to accelerate the state’s development,” he added.
Africa Daily News, New York reports that Mrs Bianca Ojukwu, the wife of Late Chief Emeka Ojukwu, the eternal leader of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA has congratulated Charles Soludo on his swearing-in as the Governor of Anambra State.
In a post on her Facebook page which was sighted by Africa Daily News, New York, Bianca described the inauguration as ‘liberation day for Anambra State.
Her reaction is coming after she engaged in a fight with the wife of the out-gone governor of Anambra State, Mrs Ebelechukwu Obiano.
Mrs Obiano who many said came set for a fight had allegedly approached Mrs Ojukwu at the front row of the event, where she was seated close to the out-gone governor, Chief Willie Obiano.
