President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, reportedly refused
a conversation with the Minister of Petroleum
Resources, Diezani Alison-Madueke , who allegedly
booked the same flight to London on Friday, May 22,
with the intention of a possible dialogue.
According to Sahara Reporters, Buhari only exchanged
greetings with the Minister while they were boarding the
British Airways aircraft, and further attempts by Alison-
Madueke to strike a dialogue after they had settled
down in their First Class compartment seats, was
ignored by the retired Major-General.
The Minister was said to have booked herself into the
seat directly behind Buhari’s.
It was reported that she got up a few times to make a
conversation with Buhari, but he only nodded without
permitting any dialogue.
Punch reported that the Minister ran to catch up with
the President-elect at the Nnamdi Azikwe Airport, Abuja
before their flight.
Alison-Madueke’s UK trip was said to be originally
scheduled for next Tuesday, May 26, after honouring
the Senate summon over the lingering fuel crisis on
Monday, May 25.
Sources said she changed her schedule, booking herself
on the same flight with Buhari after learning of his trip.
It is believed that the Minister is scheming to be in the
good books of the President-elect as her ministry is
described as the most corrupt in Jonathan
administration, and may be first to be probed by Buhari
government.
