Aviation minister Stella Oduah resigns

Stella Oduah, Nigeria’s powerful minister of aviation has quit President Goodluck Jonathan’s cabinet.
Her resignation was announced today after the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting in Abuja.
There
was no official reason given for the resignation, which followed
corruption scandals and certificate racketeering involving her.
The
woman had defied the gravity of the allegations, including her
indictment by a House of Representatives Committee, that she bought,
without lawful approval, two armored BMW cars at grossly inflated price
of N255million from Coscharis Motors. She was also accused of lying
about having a masters degree in Business administration which she never
had.
The
other ministers that also resigned are Elder Godsday Orubebe, the
Minister of the Niger Delta, Caleb Olubolade, the Minister of Police
Affairs and the Minister of State For Finance, Yerima Ngama.
The
three ministers are said to be interested in contesting for the
governorship positions in their home states of Delta, Ekiti, and Yobe
respectively.

  1. The dye is cast already…let gej sack her 20times again, his reputation is already stained! He should have acted immediately the news broke out. This man can not defend this country should there be an enemy attack..mtcheww.

  2. Very good step … but at the wrong time. We need to know why despite obvious reasons she was being retained as a minister, we need to know if she was actually probed and the findings of the probe panel. If not, it means more criminals are being harbored by the presidency and like Oduah, will also be asked one day to go and sin no more!

  3. Jona just lost one of his performing ministers and one of my few favourites scandal or no scandal. I wish her well!
