Nigerians have continued to react to the trending news about a particular minister in the immediate past administration of former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan who was alleged to have stolen awesome amount of money totalling $6B. This was revealed at one of various meetings attended by President Buhari during his recent visit to the US and made known to Nigerians by Gov. Adams Osiomole of Edo State.
The question many Nigerians are asking is centred on the identity of the said minister. While many are pondering on the identity of the minister in question, others are already giving their permutations in that regard. Let’s take it from the angle of the budget accrued to each ministry and which ministry generates revenue that amounts to and surpasses $6b, the answer is the petroleum ministry and the minister in charge is no other person than delectable Diezani Allison Madueke.
It would be recalled that this same minister has in the past years been in the media for reasons of corruption but was each of those times protected by the jonathan’s administration. Little wonder, upon the declaration of General Muhammudu Buhari as President, she became uneasy and has since been running from pillar to post to secure a soft landing in the event of a situation like this. It is being speculated in the social media and online news that the former minister is presently lying critically ill in an exclusive London hospital.
