‘Hushmummy’: Nigerians react to Diezani’s ‘Yahoo boys role model’ comment

The Former Petroleum Minister, Dieziani Alison-Madueke, in a virtual presentation, where she spoke on fatherhood and making a case for Ijaw women’s voice to be heard, described Yahoo boys life and being a role model for youths as a “travesty of an unfolding tragedy”. This comment did not settle well with some Nigerians on social media (Facebook and Twitter). Vanguard had earlier reported Diezani’s probe by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, over money laundering charges. The ex-minister according to the EFCC fled the country immediately she exited office and her stay abroad has made it difficult to get her back to respond to different criminal allegations against her.

One of her forfeited properties was handed over by the EFCC to the Ministry of Health to be used as an isolation centre during the COVID-19 pandemic. The property comprising six flats of three bedrooms and a boys’ quarter was forfeited by the former minister, following an order of a Federal High Court, Lagos in 2017. 

 The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court had in July summoned Diezani Alison-Madueke, to appear before it on October 28, to enter her plea to money laundering charge the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, preferred against her.
