Aviation officials claim $1.6m ministerial car scandal is “all rumours”

Sahara Reporters reported yesterday that Minister of Aviation Stella Oduah forced cash-strapped Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA to spend $1.6m on two armored cars for her. A rep for the minister claims the report, despite documents to show the purchase of the cars, is false.

Aviation spokesman, Yakubu Datti, told Premium Times
“I don’t respond to rumours…and as we approach 2015, people are bound to make up all sorts of stories. This is a woman (Mrs. Oduah) who is successful and established. A woman that made her mark in oil and gas, who owned trucks, barges, and so on. What is two cars?"

Exactly my point, u guys shud stop being ignorant and ranting wit mumuish ffk.. stella has passd the level where she wud hv to steal just to buy car.. even if she steal,it can definately nt be car money.. this woman has money before she came into government. Infact this is one woman I know that give brand new car to herworkers,even domestic helps.. I know is the likea of ffk that is sparwheading this rumour... stella may nt be fit to be a minister, but she is still one of the best in this government..

Make we hear word,rumours oshiii.

Soul said...

As we approach 2015? Wow, what a great spokesman.

OwnED? What happened to them? She lost them, maybe due to poor management?

Being successful and established doesn't mean that being around 'free' money won't be tempting. Even Dangote with his plenty money will still soil his hands with 'free' money.

The woman should be fired with a rocket so she can leave our planet abeg.

Shut the fuck up. If she has made money before is she not still making money. Why is she there if she is not achieving anytin? If she is not making money dis woman loves material things she wud hv resigned long time ago.

Dammie Tee said...

It ain't about two cars Mr spoke man, it's about the fact that unnecessary cars were purchased with that kind of money when better and meaningful things are left untouched. EG, ASUU Strike. Make una dey fear God naw

They shld leave dis woman Abeg! If e easy make they go steal or chop their own! Awon aye o!

Yes, ''all rumours'' indeed! Rumours backed with concrete evidence. When will Nigerian political office holders stop telling blatant lies?

BONARIO NNAGS said...

And he made no effort to debunk the purported rumour,rather than blame it on 2015.
Everything about this administration is politicized.
ASUU strike politicized.
Nigeria Governors forum politicized.
PHCN workers strike Politicized.
Health workers strike politicized.
CAN Elrufai issue politicized.
Plane crash politicized.
Rotimi Amaechi - first lady issue politicized.
FFK- aviation minister issue politicized.

may God help us.

MUMU Stella Oduah said...

sometimes, these people think we are fools...Dangote is rich yet he is still making money? Nigerians are paying for her bleaching cream and soap...Idiot!!! You better resign before 1 million crash victim blood are on your hands..

Nigeria is always going to be what it is. Corruption like a virus has infected everything . It has become a way of life a legal path to achievement, people don't see anything wrong in it . It's more a matter of well this corrupt person is not as corrupt as that other person. Nigeria is honestly a surreal experience.

Willow( The Real) said...

Many politicians in Nigeria don't have any shame. And to live without shame is dangerous.

Mich said...

So that's all the spokesman had to say,eh?
See how lowly these lot think of Nigerians,what an insult to the intelligence of Nigerians.
Its not just that she bought those cars,its the bloody timing here that upsets the majority of Nigerians...in a time where air mishaps are the order of the day,one would expect that nothing as this comes up.
So what if she was a billionaire before assuming office?she won't be the first wealthy person who assumed public office and pilfered state funds.
Such a shame!

"What is two cars?"...you say? Cars worth millions, and that statement alone makes it seem like the don't care about that much because to them that's nothing, how funny! I would wanna see how she would rock her boat with all the crisis going on in her ministry.

Corruption is ingrained in the fabric of Nigeria. The process of getting it out would tear the fabric. It would take a bloody revolution to change Nigeria.

What a pity for dis man called Jonathan and his ministers. Despite Yar'dua was UNFIT with some certain health issues, He was able to send Chief Bode George to prison for mismanagement of our national income bt truly Jonathan is MISFIT due to high level of corruption and pardon gave to ex Convict. Stop Jonathan Na or Nigeria will die prematurely.

I laugh in Kwale! Extreme greed, my friend. That is what will drive Stella and every other public officers to steal..uncontrolled greed that causes parents to sell their daughters into prostitution in the name of traveling abroad.

Silly defence!

What else do you expect them to say, that the story is true even with blatant documents? 2 cars matters a lot when they are bought illegally with taxpayers' money. The oil wealth belongs to all naijans and not a certain thievery few.

Really?! 1.6million dollars on 2 cars is nothing compared to what she has?! Plz wot does she have & how did she get it? It's a shame our politicians have made us have no value for money anymore seeing as we hear billions stolen every other day, A hundred million naira on a car is absolutely ridiculous, it's just a shame nothing will come out of this, in a week or 2, we would have forgotten bout this, no one is held accountable for their actions anymore & even when caught all they get is a slap on the wrist. Our future scares me & as usual all my ppl will say is "we'll leave them to God", "God is watching them in 3D". Absolte rubbish.

This is what all these so called ministers do, they milk the agencies they are incharge of..like bart nnaji use to collect monthly allowance of 2milllion naira monthly each from phcn distribution companies when he was minister, not to talk of exotic cars that was also purchased for him! Its the trend with these nigerian ministers/politician. They are so greedy and the money is never enough for them they want more and more and more #Godhelpnigeria from corrupt leaders

She should increase the salary of the aviation workers, to encourage them, instead of using the money they generated to buy cars for herself. The disasters are too many, I doubt they are in a right state of mind.

What's 2 cars the spokesman asked. Nigeria is truly finished. What impudence. This is proof positive dat d Nigerian leaders hv no respect for Nigerians talkless of tax payers. Even if the cars are worth 1 kobo, the issue is d manner it was procured by d Minister. Mehn dis minister and dis spokesman sud be fired immediately. Odikwa egwu o.

MOSUN said...

This explanation is so ridiculous.just two cars he says.at the expense of a failing ministry.we don't care how much money she had prior,its irresponsible for any public office holder to blatantly and shamelessly dip into tax payers money.lts wrong on all levels.and can you all just stop.everything is blamed on the coming elections.evidence shows cars were purchased at xyz costs.no one said she stole it.we are talking about the wisdom behind spending so much on vehicles against other pressing issues.debunk the story with facts and documents instead of writing crap.

MOSUN said...

My dear man,its called greed.the more they have,the more they want.and its not just two cars.its two very expensive automobiles.

For all of u that commented on my post wit abuses... lol am not here to abuse. I said sometim from my point of view and when I said even if she steal, thay was to tell u I dnt see her as a saint either. My point is, let us not follow people wwho hve selfish interest of their own and be castigating this woman.. on my score sheet, she is still one of the few perfomng ministers.. people die on our roads everyday, we hv more road accidents than plane crash, and I hv never seen anyone call for the sack of minister of works or transport. It was wrongfor her to say accidents re arts of God because the pilot isn't God stella isn't the pilot that pilot the plane either. Am happy ffk agreed we hv beautiful airports now becos even wen he was there we didn't hv neither beautiful ports nor safee air
.. what moral right do ffk havto judge someone who is doing what he cudnt do...
