It is okay for our aviation minister to pursue security measures, having perceived that her vulnerability is being "threatened."
Every Nigerian is entitled to any reasonably conventional initiative – be it in purchasing palpable properties, insurance securities or otherwise. Hence, Stella Oduah has sought protection in an automobile -as any citizen has full legitimate latitude to. Only that she as executed her legal rights in the most unacceptable fashion.
Therefore, exploiting off the entire Aviation Sector an approximate sum of N225m, in the name of being a ministry, to procure two "official" cars is, to the hilt, inappropriate and ignoble. It shows the height of corruption in our great country. Further exasperating this, is the fact that the presidency is visibly in situ to several and such cases of misuse of public office and funds.
Mulling over all these, simply calls to mind the fact that it as rather become conventional for public officeholders to exhibit their moneygrubbing makeup by contemptible acts of malversation.
While sympathising with the families of the October 3rd plane crash, Stella Oduah made an utterance that keeps one elicited by a toss of ire. "Our airspace remains safe and secure," is certainly not the wisest thing to say by a minister whose tenure as only rubbernecked while closed to 200 victims have breathed their last in her airlines between 2011 and now.
Though obvious makeovers and improvements in the aviation ministry cannot be over looked. Especially considering the fact that you she has being in office for only two years.
But beatification of airports does not ensure the safety of passengers while on air or even before taxiing off the runway. These circumstances substantiate that either: She does not quite understand what safety and security means in the aviation industry; or she does not think that the already sacrificed victims of several plane clashes in the country is enough.
