Presidency Orders EFCC to Probe Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah Over Allegations of Corruption
The allegation by Arik Air on Thursday that Aviation Minister, Princess Stella Oduah demanded 5 percent equity in the airline’s stake failing which she would be hostile and the subsequent suspension of domestic operations by the airline has taken a new dimension, Abusidiqu.com gathered.
According to reliable sources, the Presidency has ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to institute a probe into her alleged corrupt practices.
The probe, according to reliable Presidency sources, follows indications that some top government officials have allegedly been demanding extraneous cut in the stake of some airlines. Already, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and other relevant agencies are said to have been set in motion to begin background work.
The alleged involvement of the minister in questionable requests is not the first in recent times. Investigation had revealed that a company she has interest in, SPG, was involved in the fuel subsidy scam which was uncovered by the House of Representatives Committee on fuel subsidy regime.
The Hon. Farouk Lawan led committee which indicted Oduah’s company said that some claims made by the company, among other indicted ones, “could not be verified as the depots into which they purportedly dischared the products could not confirm receipt.”
