Aviation Minister Bought 4 Toyota Tundras And Four Limousines For VIPs

A new SaharaReporters investigation reveals that the National Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), another agency under the Ministry of Aviation, also purchased four Toyota Tundra vehicles for the Minister, Mrs. Stella Oduah.



 Nigerians are currently up in arms about two armored cars purchased for her by another agency, the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, at the scandalous rate of N225million, and many are calling for her to be fired.

 The Tundras are in addition to four stretch limousine cars that were allegedly purchased for the movement of VIPs.

 Saharareporters obtained the photos of the Limousines, which were parked at the headquarters of the Total Radar Coverage of Nigeria (TRACON)
grounds in Abuja today.

 Efforts to get the NAMA spokesperson, Supo Atobatele, to comment on the fresh allegations proved abortive as he claimed he was driving and could not speak on the wheel. When later confronted with the facts, Mr. Atobatele denied the existence of the stretch limos claiming that NAMA is a “professional agency” that provides navigational aid to aircrafts flying within Nigeria’s airspace. He hung  up and switched off his phone when further told that Saharareporters had the photos.

 NAMA’s CEO, Nnamdi Udo, reportedly made the purchase and ‘donation’ of the Tundras to the Minister in June 2013. The four Limousines were received in the third week of June but have never been put to use.

 Last week after SaharaReporters revealed the purchase of two BMW armored cars for the Minister, her aides and later the Managing Director of the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, Fola Akinkuotu, claimed the vehicles were meant for VIP movement, but a former lawmaker and leader of Anti-Corruption Network, Dino Melaye, told SaharaReporters today that it is the duty of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to transport international VIPs in Nigeria.

 He also revealed that the most important Aviation inspectors are teams from the ICAO who already have a Nigerian office which handles all their transactions.

 SaharaReporters could not confirm if the NAMA limos are armored. It is also unclear why NAMA, an agency believed to be cash-strapped, would need stretch limos that are normally used by celebrities, to ferry international VIPS.

 Meanwhile, a high-level source has confirmed to SaharaReporters that the Total Radar Coverage of Nigeria, which Mrs. Oduah brags about as one of
her achievements in office, provides epileptic service. Because it often breaks down, the objective of establishing a safer national airspace is said to have been compromised. Foreign airlines are said to rely on their built in navigational equipment for air safety within the Nigerian airspace.

What is going on here?
Haba...!!! KILODE...Huh?

It is not a question when to stop this waste.
It is how and let us stop it and stop it now...
There's got to be an end to this... our intelligence is being attacked everyday...

They are getting away with murder because we are not able to do anything.
We make too much noise for nothing... We Shakara for nothing...

This is painful...I call it "Armed Robbery" with a Pen.
The vault is emptied.......

If this is true...then they are all heartless including the president..
And I believe it is true.....

I am lost for words.....

They can't even afford Garri and soup without meat.  These people are heartless, cruel and callous. Tomorrow , we blame the British for the situation in Nigeria when it is our own people making things worst for us.

They do that with impunity because majority of Nigerian are imbeciles .God will not come down from heaven to fight for what rightly belongs to you.
You ought to rise up and kick these evil men and women in power away.Keep praying until you and your children die of high blood pressure which
comes from eating salt. Yes . Isn,t it salt that politicians offer villagers who vote them in?.They give you 20 naira salt for every 20 billion naira they embezzle
because they know you are cowards who die many times before their actual dealth.You even sing songs praising them, lying low whenever they drive by enjoying
your God giving resources.Shame on Nigerians who call themselves men when children know and hold firmly to what is theirs. Even women are now robbing you in broad daylight.
Soon you will have no strength to even say what evil you see on wicked politicians.Stella oduah is not the first, she will not be the last.The harder dey come.

This is abuse of office and misuse of public funds, if jonathan does nt fire for this single act, then he is weak, partial and should appologise to other ministers he sacked wit no remorse or regret.
