January 6, 2014 – Aviation Minister Stella Oduah In Fake MBA Degree Scandal

Controversial Nigerian aviation minister Stella Oduah is now in a fresh scandal over an MBA degree she reportedly received from a US-based University.

According to Sahara news, Stella Oduah’s MBA Certificate is a forged one as the University in question, St Paul’s College Lawrenceville doesn’t offer MBA degree.

Here is how Sahara reported it:

“Her resume, which she presented to the Senate as a ministerial nominee in 2011, indicated she obtained a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) from St. Paul’s College Lawrenceville, Virginia, United States.

“But SaharaReporters has learned from the President of the college that it has never in its 125-year history had a graduate school or graduate program.

“The Provost Vice President of Academic Affairs, and the Vice President of Institutional Development said in response to our inquiries, “We don’t offer any graduate programs here.”

“Similarly, the school’s website states: “Saint Paul’s College is accredited by the Commission of Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award baccalaureate [bachelor’s] degrees.” There is no mention of graduate degrees.

“The Minister’s documentation shows she received an undergraduate degree in accounting from the college in 1982, but Dr. Claud Flythe, St. Paul’s current president, could neither confirm nor deny this during a phone conversation with SaharaReporters. Further verification with the Office of Alumni Affairs is also currently impossible, the school said, because the college has been closed since June 2013 to loss of its accreditation.

“[Oduah] realized very early in life the indispensability of a sound education in her growth plans in life and therefore pursued her education with all diligence and sense of purpose,” her documents claimed, adding that a determination “to have the best education at the highest level” prompted her stay at the Virginia college in 1983 for the MBA programme.

“As her public relations machinery marched on, in December 2012 The Sun newspaper published an article headlined “Stella Oduah: An Amazon of transformation,” which lauded her “MBA from St Paul’s College, Lawrenceville Virginia USA.” The story also praised her for being an official who brought her “rich educational background to bear on the aviation sector by automating revenue centers in all the agencies and parastatals to boost their revenue profile and enhance transparency and accountability in the system.”

It was Sahara who broke the news of Stella Oduah’s BMW cars’ purchase in October.

Chei! Sahara don finish madam Stella ooo.

  1. it is not only public employer alone that should verify certificates presented at interview but also private employers. the authorities that be should endeavour to scrutinize all certificates before engaging any potential applicant. if this
    is done those presenting forged certificates will think twice. both state and national assemblies, INEC should do this for our political appointments and aspirants

  12. @ Bolaji You are not doing nigerians any good by protecting criminal from your part of the country or tribe while while u are busy identifying those corrupt public office holders from other tribes; that will not help nigeria. I am tired of reading negative comments on oduah; allison madueke;jonathan etc while criminals like FFK etc are walking the streets like a moviestar. It is on record south western produced corrupt public office holders than any region in nigeria. Who say his mama soup no sweet

Obviously no be Oduah started oluwole. Nigerians know where it started and the tribe behind it. Abeg mek una leave Madam alone oluwole has been in existencce b4 her mama bring am into this wicked world.
