Tuesday August 8, 2017 – Stella Oduah Denies Ownership of Bullet Proof BMW, Says She Transformed The Aviation Sector

Ex Aviation Minister Stella Oduah, says she is unaware of any probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on any matter allegedly concerning her.

She was reacting to media report that she had been invited by the anti-graft agency for questioning over a N225 million bullet-proof BMW allegedly purchased her when she was a minister.

The car was said to have been bought by one of the agencies under the aviation ministry.

But Ms. Oduah told NAN in Abuja on Sunday that there was no basis upon which she could be probed, saying that the vehicle did not belong to her.

“To start with, I do not know where any letter on the probe is because nobody has invited me, and as far as I know, there is nothing and there cannot be anything on invitation for purchase of a BMW.

“I did not buy a BMW; I have never bought a BMW. The BMW is a property of the government, and it is still in government care.

“The car is with the agency that bought it.

“The agency is still using it, and so, why will the car which belongs to government and in the care of government and being used by government, be an issue for me?

“I have since left the ministry,” she said.

She said that the reports were the handiworks of persons, who were not comfortable with the tremendous achievements she made in the aviation sector and wanted to tarnish her image.

The former minister said that when she was appointed, Nigerian airports were in poor states and could be compared to motor parks.

She said that no effort by anyone, including her predecessors in the ministry, could be compared with she did to reposition the aviation industry for the period she was the minister.

Oduah, now a lawmaker, challenged anyone to do a comparative analysis of the sector before she became minister, while she was minister and after she left as minister.

“I think some people are not just comfortable that what we did in aviation is unimaginable.

“What we did in aviation was so far-reaching that it had never been done before; it was unprecedented.

“To get into the lounge where people sit was impossible; most motor parks were better than what we had at the airport, whether in Lagos, Abuja or Sokoto.

“We took them on and efficiently, and in a very timely manner, changed every one of them and made Nigeria airspace safe,’’ she said.

She said safety of Nigerian passengers was made a priority while she held sway, adding that landing gears, flight gadgets, and every single thing was functioning to make Nigeria’s airspace recognised by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

“I challenge anybody to just do a spreadsheet; how aviation was before, how I made aviation and how aviation is today.”

  1. SHE TRULY TURNED AROUND THE AVIATION INDUSTRY..PEOPLE (FFK,BORISHADE,CHIKWE)WHO HEADED SAME MINISTRY FAILED WOEFULLY & COULDNT DISPUTE THAT FACT.SHE SHOULD BE CLEAR ON THE BULLET PROOF VEHICLE WHICH -PERHAPS MAY HAVE SAVED HER THEN FROM THE CABALS TRYING TO STOP HER FROM FLOATING INTL AIRPORT WHICH PREVIOUS ADMIN IGNORED..THE ONLY ONE IN THE EAST.SAME PROPAGANDA THEY KEEP PLAYING ON 2ND NIGER BRIDGE WHICH IS ONLY USED DURING PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN PERIOD.

  2. First and foremost, anybody with sense should know that a NIGERIAN agency buying a bullet-proof BMW is a RED FLAG. There is no truth in her. It just means she is sneakier than most. Usually what happens is that when or if they leave office at a time of quietness, they take the said vehicle with them, or create a fake public auction to staff of which she would win and supposedly purchase it at a meaningless price. Look GHANA people sef don dey do am…this is nothing new. All these people should be locked up for life.

    The problem with Nigerians even the so called educated ones is that WE DO NOT KNOW THE STANDARDS/YARDSTICK of what is expected from our public office holders, so when one does some small improvement e.g Fashola, we praise him not knowing that he and his friends /Tinubu etc. don over belle full with our money. Our MUMU don DO!

  3. SO, AFTER MAKING headline on most major news pappers and media houses/ outlets, you came up now after more that 3yrs to deny all the allegations?

    Well, I meant no harm. That‘s probably what your lawyer(s) adviced you to say no doubt.

    I want every body to know that the bullet proof BMW cars worth N225M allegedly bought by Stella Oduah during her ministerial tenure in the Aviation sector were MINE not her‘s.
    End of discussion.

    I take a stroll…
