Senator Stella Oduah, representing Anambra North Senatorial District in the National Assembly, has denied media reports that she advised President Muhammadu Buhari on how to prosecute former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
Reacting to a report by some online media, Oduah said she never spoke on Diezani’s case. She maintained that she did not grant any interview, last Tuesday, as purported by the media reports.
The said reports alleged that the senator had advised the Federal Government to employ due process in prosecuting the embattled former minister.
The lawmaker who expressed sadness over the report, said the report was completely false.
Her words, “I did not grant any interview on Tuesday, i did not speak to any journalist. Moreover, I never spoke on any matter concerning the former Minister of Petroleum, Diezani Alison-Madueke.
“The report is untrue. Please disregard that report as it did not come from Senator Stella Oduah. 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.
