At Last Jonathan’s Presidential Panel Indicts Stella Oduah

Posted: January 13, 2014 in Uncategorized

Stella Odauh said her problem is because she stepped on toes, but did ‘toes’ push her into “fraud”?

The Presidential investigation committee set up by President Goodluck Jonathan to probe the bulletproof cars in the sum of N255m bought by the aviation ministry has indicted the Minister, Ms. Stella Oduah.

“Those who know Jonathan knows that he is not the kind of person that can be stampeded into taking a decision. That was why he remained calm in the face of the public calls for the minister’s sacking last year. 

“As it is now, since he is planning a cabinet shake-up, he may use the opportunity to ease the woman out. After all, during shake-up like the one being planned, he owes no one any explanation. He has the power to hire and fire.”

It was gathered in Abuja on Sunday that the report of the presidential committee tallied with some findings of the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation on the scandal.
On December 19, 2013, the House endorsed the report of its committee agreeing that the minister breached the 2013 Appropriation Act.

It therefore asked Jonathan to review Oduah’s appointment for approving expenditure of over N643m for the NCAA to procure 54 vehicles last year.

“The word ‘review’ here means a change in status. It is a mild way of saying that Mr. President should sack the minister,” said the House spokesman.
