A group of concerned Nigerians under the Say No Campaign platform have urged the Economic and Financial Crime Commission to investigate the Minister of Aviation, Stella Oduah following allegations over the illegal purchase of 2 bullet proof cars for 255 million Naira.

Following these allegations, investigative panels were said to have been set up by the House of Representatives and President Goodluck Jonathan. The House of Representatives recently released a report which indicts the Minister. It was originally stated in the report that the purchase didn’t observe due process as it was not captured nor approved by the 2013 Appropriations Act. The House also faulted the diversion of funds meant for other purposes to import the bulletproof cars therafter asking that EFCC properly investigate this matter.

The Say No Campaign has urged EFCC to act in accordance with sec 6 of the EFCC Act which lists the commissions functions and also sec 7(1) which empowers the commission to the commission to cause investigation in certain cases.

The Campaign has insisted EFCC investigate the Minister and go further by arresting her for prosecution in a court of law. Failure to do this will push them to institute legal action against her.

The Say No Campaign is a coalition of civil society groups like Civil Society Legislative and Advocacy Centre, Centre for Policy Advocacy and Leadership Development, Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement and the United Action for Democracy.
