A former Minister of Aviation and a Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Femi Fani-Kayode has asked erstwhile Minister of Environment now UN Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed, to resign her appointment and be made to face criminal charges following her indictment in a $300m timber scandal.
The Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA), a Washington-based environmental campaigning organization, recently released a report accusing Mohammed of issuing export certificates to some Chinese importers to illegally clear more than $300 million worth of rosewood logs (timbers) out of Nigeria.
The agency alleged that the former Minister on January 16th, shortly before she left office, ‘hurriedly’ signed some export certificates.
See Fani-Kayode’s tweet below:
The $300 million Rosewood scam involving @AminaJMohammed, the Dep. UN Sec. Gen. and @MBuhari‘s former Minister is shameful and reprehensible. Not only should she resign but she should also face criminal charges. She has now joined the league of APC thieves and looters. Shame!
