Middlebelt Progressive Forum has said that those after the Minister of Aviation, Ms Stella Odua are actually targeting President Goodluck Jonatha.
In a letter to the President signed by the group’s coordinator and Secretary, Danladi Shaga and Shehu Maihula respectively, asked why every official that apparently does well under the President’s administration always come under the sledged hammer of critics.
The forum cautioned Jonathan to be weary of some enemies within his fold “working against your interests as moles; they are like the dangerous domestic rat that reveals to the wild rat that there is a piece of fish in the kitchen basket.”
According to the statement: “Most observers are not deceived by the hypocrisy of the on-going orchestrated and sustained mass media hysteria against Oduah. It is all hatchet job sponsored by parochial interest groups jealous and unhappy with you and your star ministers. It has not just started with the present storm in a tea cup over the two armoured BMW cars purchased by the NCAA for the use of the Aviation Ministry; and not for the personal and private use of the minister.
“Recall sir, that at a time in the recent past, it was Arunma Oteh when you sent the amazon to reposition the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) for improved performance and efficiency. She was promptly attacked by vested interests within the Opposition when her approach to work departed from the then prevailing “business as usual” ethic. No doubt, the loud call then for her sack is still pending on your table. We applauded (and still applaud) your wisdom and patriotism in ignoring such malevolent calls. Next was Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina, your able Minister of Agriculture.
