Nkriuka Onyeojeoka ,who represents Isuikuoto/Umunneochi Federal constituency is a charming politician. It is not for nothing that she has managed to keep her position of considerable influence over the past four years as Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Aviation. But in the past few weeks, it appears Onjeojeoka is running out of fresh tricks from her bag of charms such that she has resorted to her old tricks of backstabbing.
It is on record that the Oduah tenure increased government revenue generated by aviation agencies by more than 1,000 per cent that is 10 fold, which is unprecedented in the country’s Aviation history! Only yesterday, Dr Daniel Tarka, special assistant to Princess Oduah in a press statement dated June 4,2014 dismissed what he called the “ fabrication” of detractors who claimed the former minister incurred debts of over N174 billion to finance the airport remodeling project. Said Tarka:”nothing can be farther from the truth.”
Onyeojeoka and her ilk have been trying to twist the recent statement made by Dr Sam Ortom that government was finding it a bit difficult to continue to finance projects under the Aviation master plan including the remodeling project. Clearly, the supervising Aviation minister never suggested that there was anything wrong or amiss with the financing of the projects under Oduah.
He only hinted that government may want to go on with these laudable projects at a slower pace going into an election year—2015.As Tarka pointed out in his press statement on behalf of Oduah, the various remodeling projects and others were not meant to be completed in 2013 when Oduah left the Aviation ministry therefore, their implementation can be carried out ,according to the pace that can be financed and suits the new helmsman of the ministry.
