Ministry of aviation confirms purchase of N255m vehicles for Oduah
So Sahara Reporters was right after all. Yesterday an aide of aviation minister Stella
Oduah called the report 'mere rumour' but the ministry of aviation have confirmed that the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority indeed bought two bulletproof
BMW cars worth $1.6m (N255m) for Ms Oduah.
Special Assistant (Media) to the
aviation minister, Joe Obi, told Punch that the vehicles
were purchased to protect the minister from some external threats. He said the vehicles were
procured in response to the clear and imminent threat to the minister’s
personal security and life following the bold steps she took to reposition the
"When she came on board as the minister,
she inherited a lot of baggage in terms of the concession and lease
agreements in the sector, which were clearly not in the interest of the
government and people of Nigeria.
“And so, she took bold steps and some of
these agreements were reviewed and some were terminated, and these
moves disturbed some entrenched interests in the sector, and within this
period, she began to receive some imminent threats to her life;
therefore, the need for the vehicles." Joe Obi said
Lol. I see. N255million on just two cars? Does that even makes sense? Abeg make una go sleep...
