Certificate Forgery Scandal: Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah Battles To Clean Up Records – Reports


Minister of Aviation, Princess Stella Oduah who has been embroiled in yet another scandal, this time a huge certificate forgery mess, has for the last 48 hours, resorted to getting her associates and aids scrambling to clean up her biographies on the Internet, following allegations that she lied about her academic qualifications.

According to a report by news website, Premium Times which reads, “We have observed an attempt by the minister and her aides to revise her profiles on the web with a view to cleaning up any reference to St. Paul’s College in her history.

“Already, Mrs. Oduah’s biography on the website of the Ministry of Aviation has been revised, with references to St. Paul’s College now wiped out.

“Oduah-Ogiemwonyi received her Bachelors and Masters Degree (in Accounting and Business Administration respectively) in the United States,” the new profile said of Mrs. Oduah’s education, without any reference to the university she attended.

“The Wikipedia page of the minister was also edited and it now has no reference to the university Mrs. Oduah attended. The last edit on the Wikipedia page was done at 14:41 p.m. Nigerian time.

All links and reference materials on the Wikipedia page capable of linking the minister to the university that has disowned her have also been deleted,” the report added.

Premium Times reported that even the minister’s personal website  has been reviewed to remove any reference to St. Paul’s College and though the links leading to Mrs. Oduah’s foundation and photographs remain active, the other principal link, which should lead to her history page, has been deactivated, it added.

Another News website, Sahara Reporters, had on Monday quoted authorities at St. Paul’s College, where Mrs. Oduah claimed she studied for Bachelor and Masters degrees, as saying they did not award her an MBA at anytime as the university does not  even have a graduate school or graduate programme.

Efforts to get any of her aides to react to the allegation were abortive as her special assistant on media, Mr. Joe Obi, neither picked repeated calls to his phone nor responded to text message sent to him.
