IN her first major public reaction to media scrutiny about her tenure as Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke yesterday openly attacked the OSUN DEFENDER Newspaper, calling all vocal online media that are critical of her controversial reign at the oil ministry ‘local agents of cabals in the oil industry whom she had disallowed from milking the country dry’, saying she has been persecuted by those who were not happy about her “reforms” which she introduced into the oil sector.
She denied peddled rumours of her seeking asylum for “yet-to-be identified offences”, saying she had no intention of seeking asylum anywhere, because she hasn’t committed any crime.
“So let me state it clearly for the records that Nigeria is my country, just like it is any person’s and I’m not going anywhere. I love my country and I do think that I have done the best for my country and I would also like to point out that these malicious, malevolent, vindictive libels coming out of places like Osun Defender and other faceless online and other entities need to stop.”
