This is almost the first time the former Nigeria ambassador to Spain would speak concerning the agitation for Biafra republic being championed by Nnamdi Kanu and others.
Daily Trust reports that Bianca made the declaration while speaking during the inauguration of the Akpokuodike Fans Club, in Awka, Anambra state.
She, however, complained about the near-absence of the federal government in Anambra in the area infrastructure.
According to her, APGA remains the voice of Ndigbo and the party should be supported.
She told the club members that they had a major role to play as APGA and its leadership are replica and model of late Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu’s dream of a region where excellence prevails.
She pleaded with the people of the state to return Obaino for a second term for posterity sake and to sustain the dividends of good governance.
