EXPOSED: So Stella Oduah Is Working With A Fake Certificate

US College Says It Did Not Award MBA To
Stella Oduah As It Has No Masters
Stella Oduah, Nigeria’s Aviation Minister who is
embroiled in a scandal of towering proportions
in the ministry, faces new integrity questions as
her Masters’ degree has been challenged by the
United States school which she claimed awarded
the degree to her.
Her resume, presented to Senate as a ministerial
nominee in 2011, indicated she obtained a
Master's degree in Business Administration
(MBA) from St. Paul’s College Lawrenceville,
Virginia, United States.
But the School's Provost Vice President of
Academic Affairs and Vice President of
Institutional Development said in response to
inquiries: “ We don’t offer any graduate
programs here.”
Sahara Reporters has learned from the President
of the college that it has never in its 125-year
history had a graduate school or graduate
Similarly, the school’s website states: “Saint
Paul's College is accredited by the Commission
of Colleges of the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools to award baccalaureate
[bachelor’s] degrees.” There is no mention of
graduate degrees.
“[Oduah] realized very early in life the
indispensability of a sound education in her
growth plans in life and therefore pursued her
education with all diligence and sense of
purpose,” her documents claimed, adding that a
determination “to have the best education at the
highest level” prompted her stay at the Virginia
college in 1983 for the MBA programme.
As her public relations machinery marched on,
in December 2012 The Sun newspaper
published an article headlined “Stella Oduah: An
Amazon of transformation,” which lauded her
“ MBA from St Paul’s College, Lawrenceville
Virginia USA.” The story also praised her for
being an official who brought her “rich
educational background to bear on the aviation
sector by automating revenue centers in all the
agencies and parastatals to boost their revenue
profile and enhance transparency and
accountability in the system.”
Oduah’s new certificate questions are certain to
feed into national concern about her credibility
as an elected official, but also about Jonathan’s
credibility, and about the nation’s security
apparatus which verifies official documents
offered to the Senate for official nominations.
If Mrs. Oduah deliberately deceived the Senate,
it remains to be seen if the Upper Legislative
House will be sufficiently motivated to take up
the matter appropriately.
Afterall, Jonathan is yet to reveal the findings of
the panel he set up to investigate Stella Oduah's
cars scandal.
