Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah has kept silent on a fresh scandal over her MBA Certificate, which she claims to have from a United States’ university. Rather, she talked about her visit to Brazil.

Her resume, presented to Senate as a ministerial nominee in 2011, indicated she obtained a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) from St. Paul’s College Lawrenceville, Virginia,
United States.

But the School’s Provost Vice President of Academic Affairs and Vice President of Institutional Development said in response to inquiries: “We don’t offer any graduate programs here.”

Sahara Reporters reported that the President of the college said that the school had never in its 125-year history had a graduate school or graduate program.

Similarly, the school’s website states: “Saint Paul’s College is accredited by the Commission of Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award baccalaureate [bachelor’s] degrees.” There is no mention of graduate degrees.

Unfazed at the controversies trailing allegations in the social media regarding her claim to have attended St. Paul College in the United States of America (USA) as a post graduate student, the minister of aviation, Princess Stella Oduah is shrugging off the controversy.

Oduah’s aides are also reported to be doctoring the contents of relevant websites containing her academic qualifications as a means to cover up the story in the social media suggesting that she did not attend the school.

The minister is said to be in Brazil, wrote a line on her social networking website, http://www.facebook.com/ describing her stay as fun.

“Oh, so cold here in Brazil but I am having a lot of fun. God bless all my well-wishers.” She wrote on her facebook wall on Sunday when the news was broken by Saharareporters
