A malicious and completely false publication by Sahara Reporters about a contract awarded at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport during Princess Stella Oduah’s tenure as the Aviation Minister has been brought to the attention of her media team.
The Senator who represents Anambra North Senatorial District, is quite disappointed with the manner in which a hand full of media outlets have jettisoned their integrity and the credibility of the Nigerian media as a whole.
This by publishing falsehood to deliberately mislead Nigerians and making the only means of livelihood for Nigerian journalists more difficult than it already is.
The Senator refutes all allegations made by Sahara Reporters on said contract.
Stella Oduah states categorically for the record that the contract was awarded by her predecessor and challenges the online medium to provide evidence, if it has any, to counter this.
Senator Stella Oduah, a serving member of the Senate Committee on Aviation, wishes to use this opportunity:
– to urge serious and credible media houses to strive, no matter how hard, to apply due diligence,
– run thorough fact checks, before going to print,
to save Nigeria and Nigerians from ill-intentioned publications such as this, from Sahara Reporters.
