Female Ex-Petroleum Minister Set Corruption Record Yet To Be Beaten By Anybody - TY Danjuma

A former Chief of Army Staff, General Theophilus Danjuma, says he used to advocate for women’s ability to deliver on jobs without excuses until a female ex-petroleum minister changed the narrative.

Danjuma spoke in Enugu while inaugurating the Goodwill Medical Centre built and equipped by his Foundation at Umuchigbo, Iji Nike, Enugu.
Without mentioning the name of the former minister, Danjuma said she excelled in corruption and set a record that was yet to be beaten by anybody, stressing he was about to review the statement when he met Uche Amazigo.

He said, “I used to say that if you want anything properly done and deliver on time without any excuses, give the job to a woman until we had a female minister of petroleum. That woman excelled in corruption. She set a record that is yet to be beaten by anybody.

“So, I was in the process of reviewing my statement when I met one lady, Prof. Uche Amazigo Uche and I have come a very long way. My first encounter with Uche was around mid-October 2010 when she, accompanied by Mrs. Franca Ilamiji, another Igbo woman.”

Extolling the character of Amazigo, the retired Army General, said she has made him believe again that women remain the most trusted people to manage public funds prudently.
He added, “Uche and I have been colleagues for many years. After working for the TY Danjuma Foundation, I thought I had seen the end of Uche. I was mistaken.

“In early March 2022, Prof Uche, accompanied by two other female professors, presented to me a request to provide financial support for building and equipping a low-cost high-efficiency medical centre to provide excellent medical services by predominantly female medical doctors, nurses and midwives who chose to dedicate their time to humanity.

“I listened to her carefully and asked a few questions. I wanted to know if they have cash and the name of the organisation. And how she thinks an all-female-staff medical centre will function. She was ready for my questions.

“The result of all these questions is what you see here today. This magnificent edifice can only be built by women at the price they accounted to me. Men will take your money and and you won’t see any building or money.”
