Nigerians have reacted to Diezani Alison Madueke Dominican citizenship,that has supposedly granted her immunity from prosecution regarding her corruption trial for the time she was Nigeria's petroleum minister.
Although the reports and now contradictory,because another report has surfaced ,saying the Dominican story where Diezani was also made a commissioner is fake news,
According to respected journalist,Dele Momodu,he said,as of today June 7, Diezani Allison-Madueke has not been appointed Commissioner nor does she hold a diplomatic passport of the Commonwealth of Dominica.
According to Momodu, the truth of the matter is that Diezani was offered these privileges but they never came to fruition as they were suspended since October 2015.
In 2015, a Dominican news platform, DA Vibes, shared a statement from the office of the nation’s Prime Minister dismissing claims that the former Petroleum Minister had been offered their citizenship. According to reports, the offer for her to become a citizen was immediately suspended after she was arrested in London in October 2015.
Here are some reactions from Nigerians...
Asides the poll bribery scandal, the EFCC also wants Diezani to answer to account for N47.2 billion; $487.5million; N23,446,300,000 and $5milion (about N1.5billion) in various Nigerian banks. She is also expected to account for alleged spending of $6.9 million to buy three 40-feet mobile stages for use during mass public speaking events.
