Bullet-proof car: I did not buy a BMW, it’s govt property – Oduah

Former Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah has said she is not aware of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) probing any matter concerning her.

Oduah was reacting to reports that she has been invited by the EFCC for questioning over a N225 million bullet-proof BMW allegedly purchased her when she was a minister.

However, the former minister has said she cannot be probed because the car does 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.

Oduah boasted that none of her predecessors or successors have been able to surpass her achievements.

“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.

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