President Goodluck Jonathan today finally relieved the embattled Minister of Aviation, Ms. Stella Oduah of her post. Others affected were Caleb Olubolade (Police Affairs); Godsday Orubebe (Niger Delta); and Yerima Ngama (State, Finance). “They were dropped, they did not resign,” a cabinet source maintained.
Oduah’s approval for the purchase of two bullet-proof cars for N255m caused public outrage in the country with many Nigerians calling for her removal and prosecution. She was later trailed with another controversy over the authenticity of her educational background and certificates.
