How Onyeka Onwenu, Patience Ozokwor Engaged Each Other In Dirty Fight Over Jonathan Campaign Funds
The 2015 presidential election has come and gone, but the ripples it generated, especially from the Jonathan camp will remain with us for a while.
More than one month after the election, details on how singer, broadcaster, actor and Director General, National Women Centre, Onyeka Onwenu and popular actor, Patience Ozokwor. Onwenu engaged each others in dirty fight have emerged.
Onwenu, who was able to warm her way into the heart of the presidency had made it her business to have a majority of the creative population in Nigeria channel their request to see Jonathan and/or participate in his campaign through her. But when Ozokwor, on her steam managed to get attention from Aso Rock without the knowledge of Onwenu, a brawl ensued.
Onwenu insistence that Ozokwor should revert to her, however didn’t work and this added more fire to the battle.
The fracas between the two Igbo women was not unconnected with who should control disbursement of the Jonathan campaign fund to a group of certain artistes. At one of the meetings, the centre just couldn’t hold any more and things fell apart. Onwenu and Ozokwor allegedly openly abused themselves and called each other names. It took the intervention of Dame Patience Jonathan to calm the fighting women. They simply respected her but have continued to trade tirade at every opportunity.
