Stella Oduah, Nigeria’s minister of aviation is facing a new integrity scrutiny over her claim that she obtained an MBA degree from an American university. According to a new report by Saharareporters, Stella's 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 Saharareporter's 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. So, how come?
