Biance Ojukwu, the widow of late Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu has called the inauguration of Prof Chukwuma Soludo as the governor of Anambra State as “Liberation Day.”
This was contained in a statement posted on her official Facebook handle.
Ojukwu said, “It’s Liberation Day, and today we sing the Redemption Song. Anambra will be better!”
She described the inauguration of the new governor as “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.
