His words: “It is an idiot who believes what is written by Sahara Reporters. People should stop peddling falsehood. Don’t give a dog a bad name in order to hang that dog.
“The first question we need to ask is ‘were the cars budgeted for?’ If it is part of the current budget that is Mr. President’s budget, there is nothing wrong in that.
“Also, why are people giving the impression that the cars were the personal properties of the minister?
“Every ministry has official cars scattered in almost all the airports in this country. But when the minister leaves or resigns, he or she leaves all those cars behind.
“There is a serious campaign in some quarters to get Mr. President to sack the minister, why? Is it the minister’s fault that a pilot decides to take a plane that is being repaired and fly it in the air?
“Let us stop all these campaigns of calumny against the minister,” Uwazurike said.
