A former Minister of Aviation, Senator Stella Oduah (PDP-Anambra North), says she is unaware of any probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of any matter concerning her.
She was reacting to media reports that she had been invited by the anti-graft agency for questioning over a N225 million bullet-proof BMW allegedly purchased her when she was a minister.
The car is said to have been bought by one of the agencies under the aviation ministry.
Oduah told reporters in Abuja on Sunday that there is no basis upon which she could be probed, saying that the vehicle does not belong to her.
She said the reports were the handiwork of persons who were not comfortable with the tremendous achievements she made in the aviation sector and wanted to tarnish her image.
The former minister said when she was appointed, Nigerian airports were in poor states and could be compared to motor parks.
She said that no effort by anyone, including her predecessors in the ministry, could be compared with she did to reposition the aviation industry.
Oduah challenged anyone to do a comparative analysis of the sector before she became a minister, while she was a minister and after she left.
She said the safety of Nigerian passengers was prioritised while she held sway, adding that landing gears, and flight gadgets were functioning to make Nigeria’s airspace recognised by International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
