Allison-Madueke Denies Seeking Asylum


Petroleum Minister, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, has denied seeking asylum in any part of the world, as widely reported.

New York-based online news platform Sahara Reporters, citing the Business Council for Africa (BCA), said that the minister had been rejected by six countries in her search for asylum ahead of an imminent probe by incoming president Muhammadu Buhari.

“Given her reputation, it comes as no surprise to learn that 6 countries have already refused to grant her asylum to live in their countries as she now wishes to leave Nigeria at the earliest possible opportunity,” Sahara Reporters quoted BCA to have said in the monthly report it just released.


Madueke was also alleged to have fled Nigeria last week, feigning sickness, for fear of being probed.

However, Madueke, who spoke through the Group Public Affairs General Manager of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mr. Ohi Alegbe, Tuesday night, denied ever contemplating relocating from Nigeria.


  1. Where is it stated that she can not leave for vocation? Instead we to thank people like who have didecated their time and give her all for the betterment of this country. We will be insulting her and saying things which is not true. I believe this is a means that the new government wants to chase women for politics.

  2. Can’t she go on vocation again ? Can’t she go medical checkup ? Beside why are the names of those countries not mention if what you are saying is the true. This is where you people spread force rumor.

  3. Shame onto all this people with fake news. Most this media houses are the one’s causing a lot of misunderstanding between the people. They always like to read negative meaning into everything just to drag attention to their site. I pray she sue you guys for spreading fake rumor about her. If you want to inform people about things like this please get the right information about they went there to do instead of guessing and putting it for us to read.

  4. We are smart enough to know that all what they are saying is lie. A least you guys should have given us the names of those countries and so can confirm if what you are saying is truth or not. Beside their is no prove about her stealing the money as most of media house has carrying it online. Nigerians are wise to know that this is just a way to spoil her good name just as they did to our humble President.
