Nigeria’s controversial Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Allison-Madueke, has returned to a London hospital to continue treatment for an undisclosed ailment that is believed to be cancer.
sources said today that Mrs. Allison-Madueke made the journey last
week, and began a daily therapy. She is yet to return to Abuja.
one-week absence from Abuja has emboldened those Nigerians who have
been calling for her removal to further pressure President Goodluck
Jonathan to sack her as Minister of Petroleum Resources. She is
frequently cited on allegations of corruption and mismanagement, but is
also known to be a close friend of the President’s.
