Ex- minister Oduah reportedly diverted N3.6 billion

According to the report, Oduah was in service under Goodluck Jonathan’s administration secured several multi-billion naira contracts to upgrade Nigeria’s 22 airports, however a substantial amount of the money was pocketed by the minister. 

The information was obtained from the documents which show that only six out of the 192 contracts awarded in the second phase were completed.

This allegation comes in addition to the N255m bulletproof cars purchase scandal which made national news and cost Oduah the appointment as a minister during Jonathan’s term. 

It should be noted that Oduah has recently obtained an interim injunction preventing the EFCC from investigating, arresting, questioning, or prosecuting her. 

However, later the injunction was annulled, which allowed the EFCC to commence the probe into the cars purchase probe. The investigation was said to have shown that the ex-minister not only misallocated N255m but also dirverted N3.6bn to the eight companies created for money laundering.
