Stella Oduah, Nigeria’s minister of aviation faces a fresh integrity scrutiny over her claim that she obtained an MBA degree from an American university.

A Saharareporters report said her claim
has been punctured by the United States school which supposedly awarded it.

“Her resume, which she presented to the Senate as a ministerial nominee in 2011,indicated she obtained a Master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) from St. Paul’s College Lawrenceville, Virginia, United States.

“But SaharaReporters has learned from the President of the college that it has never in its 125-year history had a graduate school or graduate program.

“The Provost Vice President of Academic
Affairs, and the Vice President of Institutional Development said in response to our inquiries,

“We don’t offer any graduate programs here.”

“Similarly, the school’s website states: “Saint Paul’s College is accredited by the Commission of Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award baccalaureate [bachelor’s] degrees.” There is
no mention of graduate degrees.

“The Minister’s documentation shows she received an undergraduate degree in accounting from the college in 1982, but Dr. Claud Flythe, St. Paul’s current president, could neither confirm nor deny this during a phone conversation with SaharaReporters.

Further verification with the Office of Alumni Affairs is also currently impossible, the school said, because the college has been closed since June 2013 to loss of its accreditation.
