BREAKING: Jonathan drops corrupt Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah, 3 others

Stella Oduah

President Goodluck Jonathan has accepted the resignation of four cabinet ministers.

They are Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah; Minister of Police Affairs, Caleb Olubolade; Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godsday Orubebe; and Minister of State for Finance, Yerima Ngama.

They were asked to resign to save them the humiliation of being sacked.

It is not immediately clear why Messrs Olubolade, Orubebe and Ngama were asked to leave.

But Mrs Oduah was sent packing over corruption-related offences.

She was indicted by both the House of Representatives and a presidential committee for compelling an agency under her supervision, the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA, to buy her two exotic armoured cars in violation of Nigeria’s public procurement laws.

A PREMIUM TIMES investigation also found her to have lied about her qualifications in the resume she presented to the Nigerian senate for her confirmation hearing. She claimed a non-existent university awarded her an honorary doctorate.
