In the wake of her election as senator-elect representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, she bragged about eyeing the office of the Deputy Senate President.

The fair-complexioned woman hinged her ambition on the fact that she was the most qualified woman for the office having won her senatorial district the third time.

Tinubu’s dream, however, failed to come true, as she was not in contention when her colleagues in the Senate voted Omo-Agege to fill her most cherished office. For her, it’s definitely another dead dream.

Published

Bianca Ojukwu

Loyalty comes at a price. Some people know this, while others don’t.

 

If the price is paid loyalty continues, but when it is not, it ceases.

 

One person who recently found this out is fair-complexioned Bianca Ojukwu, Nigeria’s former ambassador to Spain.

 

Over the years, the wife of the late Description Chukwuemeka Ojukwu, one of the frontline leaders of the Igbo clan had basked in the glory of the loyalty showered on her deceased husband.
