A former Minister of State for Finance, Senator Nenadi Usman, has disclosed her cancer problem, the second minister that served former president Goodluck Jonathan to be so afflicted.
The first is Diezani Alison-Madueke, former minister of petroleum. She is now in London recuperating.
Nenadi disclosed her cancer problem when she asked Justice Muslim Hassan of the Federal High Court in Lagos to permit her to travel abroad to receive treatment.
According to a report by The Nation, she said doctors at the National Hospital recommended that she receive further treatment abroad after suffering a relapse after a surgery.
Her application, however, could not be heard because the judge ruled he would first consider a pending application challenging the court’s jurisdiction.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) arraigned Usman with former Minister of Aviation Chief Femi Fani-Kayode.
They were charged with former National Chairman of the Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON) and ex-Chairman of Kagarko Local Government of Kaduna State, Mr. Yusuf Danjuma and a company said to belong to him, Jointrust Dimentions Nigeria Limited.
EFCC arraigned them on a 17-count charge of laundering about N4.6billion. They pleaded not guilty.
