Following the certificate scandal of Aviation minister, Stella Oduah, Chairman, Ikeja branch of the Nigerian Bar Association, Mr. Onyekachi Ubani, and the Coalition Against Corrupt Leaders, has called for the removal of the minister.
According to Ubani, Oduah was not fit anymore to be the country’s aviation minister.
He said, “It is becoming very embarrassing. When the news broke out, I was concerned about whether thorough investigation was done before the story was published. But when by the second day the woman started deleting the records online, I knew something was in the offing.
“This was the same woman who broke extant laws in buying bulletproof cars far above the allowed limits, I think something has to be done now. It is even the right time for the woman to speak out.
“If such a person that lies about her certificate can spend additional second in office, it shows how badly we have descended as a nation.”
Also speaking the CACOL’s Executive Chairman, Mr. Debo Adeniran, said in a telephone interview that the scandal was a proof that Oduah was engrossed in primitive accumulation.
“It is an eye opener to the fact that the woman is engrossed in primitive accumulation. If she had been properly educated she would not have engaged in prebendal politics with which she curried the favour of President Jonathan.
“It also shows how merit and technical competence have been sacrificed in appointing public officers.”
