Former Aviation Minister and senator representing Anambra North in the National Assembly, Stella Oduah, has denied media reports that she advised President Muhammadu Buhari on how to prosecute former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke.
Reacting to a report by some online media, Oduah said that she never spoke on Diezani’s case, adding that she did not grant any interview on the matter as indicated by the report.
The reports alleged that the senator had advised the Federal Government to employ due process in prosecuting the embattled former minister.
The senator who expressed sadness over the report said that the report was completely false.
“I did not grant any interview on Tuesday, I did not speak to any journalist. I never spoke on any matter concerning the former Minister of Petroleum Diezani Allison Madueke.
“The report is untrue, Please disregard the report as it did not come from me.
“During a recent interview which I granted last week, I only spoke on issues bothering on women, the economy, need for inland ports in the South East, the aviation sector and the PDP governorship primaries in Anambra state,” she said.
She called on the media to always verify reports before publishing, adding that she is always open to journalists.
