There were indications on Wednesday that the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation had established some infractions against the Minister of Aviation, Ms Stella Oduah, and the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority.
The committee is investigating the controversial purchase of two bulletproof BMW cars by the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority allegedly for Oduah at a whopping N255m.
However, she testified before the committee, which is chaired by Mrs. Nkiruka Onyejeocha, and denied that the cars were bought for her use.
The panel ended its public hearing on the transaction on Monday.
Oduah was expected to appear before the Senate on Wednesday but could not because of the Federal Executive Council meeting.
Findings by The PUNCH indicated that the Onyejeocha –led committee might lay its report before the House on Thursday (today).
It was gathered that after deliberating on records before them, members of the panel had established some infractions against the minister and the NCAA.
Sources close to the committee confided in The PUNCH that “at least four issues are no longer disputable.”
According to findings, one of the issues is “extra-budgetary spending”, while the second is “approval beyond ministerial limit.”
It was learnt that the committee also established a case of “violation of public procurement procedures.”
Similarly, the panel confirmed that “indeed, N255m was spent to buy two bulletproof BMW cars and the use of waivers meant for EKO Games to import the cars.”
A close source revealed that the committee tried to remain focused on its core mandate and not to veer off into other allegations that might have been levelled against the Ministry of Aviation.
