Why N255m Bullet-Proof Cars Have Not Been Returned – Minister

The supervising minister of Aviation, Samuel Ortom, said on Tuesday that the ministry has been unable to comply with the directive of the National Assembly to return the controversial N255 million bullet-proof cars bought by the former minister, Stella Oduah, owing to the delays caused by due process.

Ortom spoke to newsmen at the National Assembly after a meeting with members of the House of Representative committee on Aviation

He said that the directive would be complied with as soon as due consultation is concluded in line with the laid down procedures.

The supervising minister also disclosed at the meeting that the $500 million Chinese facility for the remodelling of the country’s airport has not be accessed since there was no budgetary provision for it in the 2014 Appropriation Act.
