Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has asked former Minister of Environment now UN Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed, to resign her appointment and be made to face criminal charges following her indictment in a $300m timber scandal.
The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), a Washington-based environmental campaigning organization, recently released a report accusing Mohammed of issuing export certificates to some Chinese importers to illegally clear more than $300 million worth of rosewood logs (timbers) out of Nigeria.
The agency alleged that the former Minister on January 16th, shortly before she left office, ‘hurriedly’ signed some export certificates. Read here.
