Minister of Aviation Responds to Fani- Kayode, Says He Should Hide His Head In Shame

The Minister of Aviation, Ms. Stella Oduah, has responded to Femi Fani-
Kayode, by calling him as an ignorant person , who "should hide his head in
Fani-Kayode, a former minister of Aviation, had criticised Oduah yesterday
for saying air crashes are 'God's will'.
"How many more people have to be killed in air crashes before our President
(Dr. Goodluck Jonathan) realises that he needs a new Minister of Aviation?"
Fani-Kayode had asked.
But Oduah said in Abuja that Fani-Kayode was misleading innocent
Nigerians and needed sympathy. She spoke at an aviation safety event
organised by the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation and hosted by the
Nigerian Airspace Management Agency.
Oduah said, "I have huge sympathy for them, the ignorant people in
particular. Because when you speak out of context, when you speak under
the influence of whatever it is you are under, you speak incorrectly and you
mislead innocent Nigerians and that is what he has done. And he really
should hide his head in shame."
Fani-Kayode, while reacting to Oduah's comments about him, asked the
minister to grow up and stop being petty. He said, "My advice and counsel to
her is to grow up and stop being petty. She is meant to talk like someone
who befits her office and not like a market woman or a fish wife. I do not like
joining issues with women publicly which is why I was very gentle with her in
my essay though I made my point. But this particular woman is endangering
the lives of our people with her incompetence and insensitivity and we cannot
just keep quiet. This is a woman under whose watch almost 200 people have
been killed as Aviation Minister and instead of focusing on how to save lives
her obsession has become smearing and abusing Femi Fani-Kayode."
