Bullet-proof cars not bought for me, Oduah tells Reps

The Minister of Aviation, Ms. Stella Oduah, has denied reports that the two BMW armoured cars, bought by the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority from Coscharis Nigeria Limited, were bought for her.
Appearing before the committee looking into the crisis in the aviation industry, especially the purchase of the armoured cars, Oduah said the controversial cars were meant for the safety of aviation visitors to the country.

She claimed the NCAA bought the cars for the safety of foreign aviation visitors in line with Nigeria’s growing role in AICAO certification.
“It is totally untrue that NCAA bought cars for me.
“They were not registered in my name”, she said
Meanwhile after a long wait by the committee members and the press, the minister arrived at 11.42am, about one hour 42 minutes behind the scheduled 10am for the session to testify before the committee.
She came a few minutes after the committee members, led by the Chairman, Mrs. Nkiruka Onyejeocha, arrived the venue. The minister, who wore a stripped blue ankara dress with a matching blue head scarf, walked into the hall at 11.42am

Oduah also wore white beaded jewellery to complement her embroidered blouse.
She took a sit facing the panel members. But, shortly after, she rose, went halfway between her seat and the high table, where she exchanged pleasantries with the committee chairman.
Oduah walked out of the hall before returning again to resume her seat.
