Controversial N255m bullet-proof BMW not mine, says Stella Oduah

Former Minister of Aviation, Senator Stella Oduah, says she is unaware of any probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on any matter 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, Oduah told reporters 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 want 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 what she did to reposition the aviation industry for the period she was the minister.

Oduah, who is 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 the 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,” she said.

    Along with almost everything which seems to be developing within this particular subject material, all your perspectives are somewhat exciting. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I do not subscribe to your entire strategy, all be it radical none the less. It seems to me that your commentary are actually not completely rationalized and in reality you are generally your self not even wholly convinced of the point. In any event I did appreciate reading through it.

    Im not startled by the market growth of eReaders considering the new players in the market. Once, the Sony Book Reader was the champion and captured the marketplace but with the advent of the ipad tablet and Kindle other providers took a back seat. I surmise the development of these electronic devices is really motivated by a selection of high class e-books that now fill the market. I went ahead and purchased the apple ipad tablet (the most recent version) that is an issue that I do not regret. The look and feel of the thing is so much more advanced than the Kindle (IMO) however granted the retail price variances are very marked.
