The embattled Minister of Aviation, Ms. Stella Oduah, has commenced a high-powered lobbying to get into a room with President Goodluck Jonathan with a view to beg him to forgive her and save her job.
She tried using former President Olusegun Obasanjo to beg Jonathan to forgive her but Obasanjo turned her down, saying he can’t get himself involved in an obvious act of corruption. Stella Oduah, sensing that she has bitten more than she can shew, then rushed to Aso Rock to personally beg Jonathan…
She was sighted at the Presidential Villa in Abuja late on Friday but Jonathan ignored her. A presidency top source confirmed Stella Oduah’s visit to the Villa.
According to the source, Oduah “wanted to explain herself to the President who, like every Nigerian, was embarrassed by the media reports and the evidence of the purchase of the two cars at an outrageous sum of N225m.”
The source said, “She was here (Villa) on Friday but like you know, Mr. President was busy throughout the weekend.”
Meanwhile, indications have emerged that Jonathan is set to probe Stella Oduah over the N255m car and all other transactions he has trusted her with in the past. This is because Jonathan used to believe that she is one of the best ministers he had until this monumental fraud was uncovered.
Meanwhile, Ms. Oduah is expected to appear before the Senate as the Senate resumes plenary on Tuesday.
