PICTURES: Former Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah Gets Chieftancy Title In Anambra
An ex Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah-Ogiemwonyi, was decorated with a Chieftaincy title in Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State on June 7, 2014.
The former minister, involved in the controversial N255m bullet-proof BMWs purchase, got “Ada Eze Chukwu” title for her “outstanding service to Nigeria”.
The ceremony was led by the traditional ruler of Ogbaru, Igwe Nelson Ethmal and had lots of dignitaries, including Senator Ben Obi, in attendance.
The senator tagged Stella Oduah as a visionary, who was able to achieve a lot in male-dominated world. He reminded about her great contribution in upgrading the 22 domestic airports.
For instance, the Enugu airport, now Akanu Ibiam International Airport, got the status of the international airport and became an important hub for the whole South East.
It would be noted that Stella Oduah was removed from her post by President Goodluck Jonathan on February 12, 2014, due to armoured cars scandal. The ex minister was also suspected in submitting forged academic qualifications.
