Everywhere you turn, there’s she is, looking like she could not have managed a quarter o all the allegations heaped against her. You turn on your TV screen, your computer, influencers in social media have found a way to make a meme out of her situation.
The next thing you know, you’ll turn a page in your current read and find her there too – Former Nigerian Petroleum Minister, Diezani Alison Maduaeke and (her) loot – why not? Yesterday, a man who may have single handedly ruined his own business found a way to bring Diezani’s name into the matter, essentially blaming her or bringing his media business down.
Yet, you are just in your lane wondering how this has become such a big deal in a country where the sitting President possibly pays 1000 Pounds per day to park “his” jet in the United Kingdom. We get you but we also know that this means you don’t even know how bad things are. This woman has been accused of stealing enough money to “fund 6 world-class airports”. Only her.
And because we cannot let you continue to live like this isn’t a big deal, we have prepared an “Understanding Diezani” Starterpack just or you.
Who is Diezani Alison-Madueke?
If you never met her, that’s how you should be introduced to her. We wrote that in 2012 and it still relevant today.
It started like an ordinary beef
And then things escalated really quickly
She did not help matters at all
And then there is Malabu which even the experts could not believe at first
And when we, as a country could no longer carry her loot alone
A family affair (literally and otherwise)
And since you’re already here,
And now, welcome TO THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL
We forgot to warn you to grab a chair before reading through.
