Nigerian Aviation Ministry, has decided to go after its official who allegedly leaked the information of the purchase of two armoured vehicles for the Minister, Stella Oduah.
The Director-General, NCAA, Capt. Fola Akinkuotu, disclosed this at a press conference at the head office of the Federal Ministry of Aviation in Abuja on Friday,
Mr Akinkuotu, while condemning
the leak of the information, said Nicholas Edwards, a staff of the ministry who allegedly leaked the information to journalists, is now on the run.
He said he was “shell shocked that government information and particularly information from the civil aviation authority has gotten into public purview in an illegal manner. It is criminal! However, what has been done has been done, but I think when such information is gotten, you should have come to the agency to ask. We are not shy to take your questions.”
He further added that the two cars purchased for N255 Million, are meant to serve both the Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah, and Aviation-related foreign dignitaries
NCAA had purchased two vehicles valued at a whopping $1.6m said to have been delivered to Oduah in August this year. The armoured vehicles, BMW 760 Li, were bought from Coscharis Motors Limited in Lagos.
