“I Did Everything Right” – STELLA ODUAH:

Former Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah, yesterday justified her deeds in office, saying that she acted with dignity.


Appraising herself before a gathering of stakeholders in the aviation industry, including civil servants and pilots, Oduah, whose tenure was rocked by her purchase of two bulletproof cars for N255 million, insisted that she did “the right thing” while in office.

Oduah maintained that Nigerians deserved selfless service, which she said the ministry and stakeholders under her watch collectively offered.

The inspired former minister ignored the speech her media aide, Mr. Joe Obi, prepared for her and spoke extempore.

Oduah said :

“I want to thank everybody in the ministry for their support… Most of you don’t know Obi. He likes to write and he has given me five pages to read. Obi, my apologies, I want to decline. I am not going to read this because I really don’t have anything to say but to say that what we did, we did it collectively.

“And what we did, we did for our people, and I say Nigerian people deserve what we have done and I believe that anyone who is coming next will do far better than what we have done because the structures are there, the roadmap is there, the compass is there… Today is a day for me to tell Nigerians that there is dignity in labour. You must do anything and everything in prioritising what Nigerian people need and what they deserve, and when you do that, posterity will not judge you unfairly.

“Also when we started, we did not play to the gallery. We did not prioritise the media because it was not about them; it was about Nigerian people; it was about doing the right thing. And without being immodest, I think we did the right thing, I think we have done our beat and we pray that the next people will do their beats.”


  1. I wonder why many Nigerians lack shame. A shameless person hardly distinguish good from bad. Small feaces at the edge of a plate of food is enough to kill man’s appetite.
    Stella’s corruptive abdministration&operation falsive acts spoilt wharever records she is claiming to have made. She is no longer relevant in the aviation ministry. She should return all she had embezzled.
    If she has shame, she should just keep quiet for sometime abdministration&operation stop irritating us the more. Her self praise and self righteousness cannot change or convince the populace of her greed drives and selfish behavior. She should follow what Jesus Christ told the rich man that was seeking salvation, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me.” Mt. 19:21.
    What she should do is to honestly declare and return the money and materials she collected illegally from office back to nation’s treasury. By this she becomes automatic heroin and unprecedented patriot and loyal leader.

  2. My Sister you did your Job perfectly you are an Amason,dont mind those critics who were giving opportunity but cannot account for anything,they are only jelouse that a Woman could acchieve more than them… Today because of you, for the first time after many Aviation Ministers Nigeria can boast of many International standard Airports in just a short period of your Administration that was ended by jelouse Evil men that dnt want Nigeria to Develope for their selfish gain. Kudos to you.

  3. The best aviation minister we have ever had! Thanks you , Adaeze, for shaming the tribal chameleons who never see anything good in anybody who does not speak their language. You are already crowned without them. Nwanyi oma ndewoo!!
