Contrary to reports on Friday by online newspaper, Sahara Reporters that Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke, today booked herself on a British Airways flight to London with Nigeria’s President-Elect, Muhammad Buhari in an attempt to travel with the President-Elect, a close family source to Mrs. Madueke has disclaimed the report as utter rubbish and a poor attempt at gossip journalism.
Speaking on Friday to BREAKING TIMES, the source who spoke to our reporter anonymously, exclaimed in surprise: “Nobody can fly again because Buhari is on the same flight? Her (Diezani) son is coming out of school today and she had to travel to attend the ceremony. Her husband, Admiral Alison Madueke is also in London for the graduation. He traveled last night. So what are they saying?”
According to Sahara Reporters, Diezani had been billed to travel to the UK next week Tuesday but upon learning that Buhari was traveling to London, she asked the airline to book her on the same flight as Buhari so that she could have a chance to discuss directly with the President-Elect.
