Senate Makes U-Turn On Oduah


The Senate, Thursday, made a U-turn from its initial resolution on the Aviation Minister, Princess Stella Oduah to appear before the plenary to explain how the aviation industry was run as it now directed that the minister should appear before the Committee on Aviation instead of coming to the plenary.

The senate had in a resolution summoned the minister to appear on the floor of the senate to give her stewardship on how the ministry is run with special concern on the air crashes that had taken place since she started overseeing the activities of the ministry.

But in a resolution after the motion sponsored by the Senate Leader, Chief Victor Ndoma-Egba, and supported by the Minority whip, Senator Ganiyu Solomon, the senate rescinded its earlier position that the minister and the Chief Executives of the Aviation Parastatals should appear at the upper legislative chamber during plenary.

In the resolution, the senate instead said, “That the Minister of Aviation and Chief Executives of Aviation Parastatals do brief the Senate Committee on Aviation on the state of Aviation sector on the high number of Aviation incidents in the country.” [Vanguard]
