According to a Saharareporters exclusive, a mild drama ensued at the River Jordan when the Nigerian delegation in Israel led by President Jonathan went there on Saturday to offer prayers, led by the President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) Ayo Oritsejafor.
After praying for President Jonathan and other dignitaries at the venue, Mr. Oritsejafor then specifically prayed for Mrs. Oduah, the embattled aviation minister, but to his surprise several people in the gathering refused to say “Amen” to his prayer, stunning the CAN president and Mr. Jonathan. Several people then exchanged glances and moved on.
The online publication has also reported that calls for the prosecution of the Minister grew louder over the weekend as it emerged that the Nigerian Civil Aviation Authority (NCAA), the agency reportedly responsible for the purchase of the two BMW cars, cannot physically locate them.
The Abuja–based online news platform, PREMIUM TIMES, also reported that the office of the National Security Adviser has said that neither the Minister nor the NCAA applied for, or received the mandatory “end user certificate” for the cars. Similarly, several sources at the Federal Road Safety Corps have told SaharaReporters that the agency never presented the cars for licensing.
