Former aviation minister, Oduah, picks Anambra PDP Senatorial ticket

The immediate past Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah, has won the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP ticket for Anambra Senatorial seat.

In a result announced in Nteje, Anambra State, Sunday, Ms. Oduah polled 259 votes to defeat Margery Okadigbo, the incumbent, and wife of former Senate president, Chuba Okadigbo.

Mrs. Okadigbo got eight votes.

Other contestants for the ticket included Sam Ikefuna, 10 votes; and John Emeka, 15 votes.

The former minister, who picked the party’s nomination form last October, got almost 90 percent of the total votes cast by delegates.

Mrs. Oduah was removed from office in Febraury, amid allegations corruption after she ordered the purchase of armoured cars not listed in the budget, and at nearly twice the market price.

    Bullet proof Oduah going to the senate? Well, it looks like compensation from Dumbo for her effective daylight robbery in the aviation ministry on his behalf.

  • amazing2012

    Surely any body who defeated Jonathan as president next year will have a lot to do because of the number of criminals already put in place by his administration. However if he manipulated the election, the system will be the worst on earth full with people with bad records and unskill president ! Stella for what ? Abacha’a son for what ? Kusumu for what ? Alamesies daughter ? Hahahaha

    • Wähala

      …and Ibori’s daughter for what?
      It is party of criminals. One goes, another replaces him…

    • Olu Ade

      God will surely uproot them from our national life…

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Tinubu and Atiku are the ones with good records abi ?

        Whoever that is going to stop our economic and genocide curse is welcome. Tawanda ! If you can stop it you are also welcome, so is not tribe, religion, name or region that is important now to Nigeria what is important is who will solve our problems.

  • Olu Ade

    Only in Nigeria can this happen! Keep riding higher with your bullet proof BMW cars… I just wonder what you will buy next when you become a senator…probably a jet.

    sorry nigerians wake up from ur slumber b4 d jonathanians destroys dis country

  • Warri Boy

    Hear PT: “Mrs. Oduah was removed from office in Febraury, amid allegations corruption after she ordered the purchase of armoured cars not listed in the budget, and at nearly twice the market price..”

    …and so what? Is Farouk De Dollar who stole and tucked the cash in his small head not a thief? Isn’t that fraud? Now it is only Princess Stella you can fret over? Is Farouk not still a member of the legislathief today? When millions disappeared during MKO abiola supervision of ITT, Nigerians rather than probe & prosecute, decided to ignore and/or applaud. It was only Fela who granted a world press interview on the issue (available on youtube) where he exposed Abiola & OBJ as regards the fraud…as usual, he would later sing about it.

    ..But MKO despite the corruption scandal at ITT went on to be a presidential candidate…So, Farouk continues as a Legislathief bcos nothing happened to MKO, nothing happened to Bank-Ole. ..So, why wont Stella contest? You must be incurable insanity to think otherwise.

    Until we make prosecution for corruption and punishment thereof retroactive, these normal or absurd occurrences will persist.

    • Ibidapo@Ibadan

      You have spoken truth my brother. We condoned thieves in the past. All thieves and potential thieves planning to join those caught on camera stealing Dollars will not stop bcos nobody punished the thieves of past times. We urgently need a Rawlings formula

  • tsunami1earthquake

    I can’t believe this! Okadigbo has been a very good senator in and out of the Senate chambers. She has done a lot for her senatorial zone. Is this how this zone decided to compensate her? Nigerian politics is not worth the candle, after all. Other parties should grab Okadigbo for she is rare gem.

  • sanusi adamu

    God save Nigeria. In a civilised world How could a disgraced public servant have the guts to even think of joining the public service again, talk less of contesting for public office. But in Naija anything goes.

  • igbiki

    The PDP have had about 7 different primary elections in Anambra Central, but later they are going to have a primary where these different primary election WINNERS would choose who amongst then should take part in the LAST primary to choose the PDP Sen candidate for Anam Cent Zone

    • Dazmillion

      My friend you hit the nail on the head. Your analysis is 100% correct

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    Buhari was Petroleum Minister when $2.8 billion vanished into thin air,he later became Head of state and today he is still contesting for Presidency

    MAY AMADIOHA SPEEDILY SEND THUNDER TO FIRE ALL OF YOU WHO THINK THE MOST ACHIEVING AVIATION MINISTER OF THE PAST 30 YEARS SHOULD NOT RUN FOR SENATE BECAUSE SHE BOUGHT 3 BULLET PROOF CARS FOR HER DEPARTMENT AS IT WERE.
    The Princess is our daughter,she will contest and she will win….you can all go and hang !!!

  • UOU

    Shame on all of you who thinks worse of, this sterling lady who has done so much for the aviation industry especially making Akanu Ibiam Airport, may good thing never visit all the tribal, slavy and evil jokers like Wahala. Richly, Princess Stella Oduah will be in the senate and leave another great mark as a legislator

  • UOU

    Especially upgrading the Akanu Ibiam Airport to International status

  • favourtalk

    It can only be possible in nigeria and PDP in general, imagine someone who stole almost a billions to buy a car and a loads of mis-appropriation under her regime in aviation sector has the audacity to come out again in a deadly party and represents some people in the upper chamber?? What a shame and a bad leadership in our country, his fellow drug pusher also is representing ogun, someone should just tell me about the ability of those two in the national assembly. We can now agree with obasanjo now when he made the statement of thieves and arm-robbers in the national assembly. We need a change

    regulated market in terms of price, demand and supply would never ever work. Nigeria can immediately solve a lot of it problem by quickly deregulating its power, gas and fuel market. it also would benefit from making most of it industry publicly traded companies.
