The Minister of Aviation, Ms Stella Oduah on Tuesday said the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation’s report did not recommend her sack by President Goodluck Jonathan.
Oduah, who was responding to a question that drew her attention to the report said that “what they said is that Mr President can and should review; that is what they said there”.
She however asked the journalist who asked the question to go back to school.
“I think it means you don’t read or you probably don’t understand English, because I read it” adding that “what they said is that Mr. President can and should review; that is what they said there. Probably, you should go back to school” she said.
The minister said this while fielding questions from journalists after inspecting remodelled facilities at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos.
The House of Representatives had urged President Goodluck Jonathan to review the continued engagement of Ms Stella for contravening the Appropriation Act 2013 following the report of its Committee on Aviation.
According to the report, the minister also contravened the Appropriation Act by exceeding the ministry’s approval limit of N100 million by the purchase of 54 vehicles at N643 million.
This was a major part of the resolutions adopted by the lawmakers after considering the report of the House Committee on Aviation, on the purchase of two armoured cars for N643 million.
