Theophilus Danjuma, a former chief of staff of the Army, has said that Diezani Alison-Madueke, a former minister of petroleum, was a proponent of corruption.
Danjuma stated he knew of no other Nigerian woman who was as good at corruption as Alison-Madueke.
On Tuesday, he gave a speech at the opening of the Goodwill Medical Centre (GMC) in Umuchigbo, Iji Nike in the Enugu East Local Government Area.
According to the former Army Chief, Diezani set a record that was yet to be beaten by anybody.
He said, “I used to say that if you want anything properly done and delivered 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 was accompanied by Mrs. Franca Ilamiji, another Igbo woman.”
