Stella-Oduah

As the National Assembly resumed following the Sallah break, the House of Representatives, Tuesday, mandated the House Committee on Aviation to investigate the alleged purchase of two bullet proof BMW cars valued at N255 milion for Minister of Aviation,Princess Stella Oduah.

The Reps instructed the House Committee on Aviation to submit the report of its findings within 168 hours, one week, to the House for further deliberations.

This development was sequel to a motion brought to the floor of the House by Rep Samson Osagie, APC, under matters of National Importance and seconded by Rep Shehu Gusau, APC representing Zamfara state .

In his motion, Osagie asserted that investigations into the purchase of $1.6million bullet proof BMW cars by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA) for Minister of Aviation, pursuant to Section 88 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) has become mandatory.

According to him, “given the poverty and unemployment ravaging our dear nation and its people, it will be absurd, unthinkable and indeed unpatriotic for an agency of government to connive with its political head to incur such an expenditure simply for the comfort and safety of one public officer”.

Speaking further, Osagie said, “over the past four weeks, the nation has been inundated with the news of the purchase of $1.6m BMW bullet proof cars by the NCAA for the Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Adah Oduah”.

“The furore generated by the said matter have left tongues wagging as the sincerity and objectivity of this administration’s stand on fight against corruption as again re-emphasized by Mr. President’s nationwide broadcast on October 1st 2013″.
