DIEZANI Alison-Madueke, on Wednesday, April 22, denied media reports that she was on the run and seeking asylum in some foreign countries. Addressing state House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting, on Wednesday, Alison-Madueke said she was not leaving the country and that there was no reason to do so.
She blamed the media reports on cabals who were not happy with the reforms she introduced in the oil and gas sector in the country. The minister said: “Let me state it clearly for the records that Nigeria is my country and am 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, malevolence, vindictive libels coming out of places like Osun Defender and other faceless online and other entities need to stop.”
