A member of Equity Advocates, EA, Group Captain Patricia Okibedi, Rtd, has urged Nigerians to carefully study the allegations against Stella Oduah by giving her the opportunity to express her position before jumping into conclusion.
She stated it in Abuja in the paper entitled "Attacks on Rising Female Stars".
Okibedi is sure that the Aviation Minister shall be given a chance to say something before her enemies crucify her. She warned that Oduah’s huge exploits in the aviation sector are being down-played noting that it is dangerous for the democracy and for female specie in general.
According to the speaker,
“The energies, resources and emotions being sunk into the allegations against the Aviation Minister, Princess Stella oduah, are so huge that one begins to wonder what is happening. Why the political, ethnics, religious, class and sex dimensions being infused into the matter?
“After careful analysis of the purchase of bullet-proof cars by the Aviation Ministry, we have come to the conclusion that the anti-corruption fight is not fought head-long but selective, targeting female public office holders in particular,” she added.
Okibedi belives that continuous attack on female rising stars is quickly eroding the gains recorded in the last five years in the empowerment and advancement of women.
Concluding her statement, Okibedi appealed to newsmen saying they should find out facts in order to give Nigerians correct and accurate results.
