I’m Dying Of Cancer, Allow Me To Return To Nigeria – Ex-Petroleum Minister, Diezani Begs Tinubu Government

Diezani Madueke, a former petroleum minister under former President, Goodluck Jonathan, who fled to the United Kingdom due to fears of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has appealed to the President Bola Tinubu-led Nigerian government for leniency.

Diezani who is reportedly in the second stage of cancer implored Tinubu to permit her to return to Nigeria to confess to her financial misconduct during her tenure.
Speaking to the press in London after a medical visit, the ex-Petroleum minister, accused of embezzling billions of dollars from Nigeria, expressed her readiness to disclose details of the funds she allegedly misappropriated while in office.

According to Nigerian Tribune, she said, “I am now a born-again Christian and currently grappling with the second stage of cancer, for which my United Kingdom-based physician has advised me to continue medication for the rest of my life. Yes, no one is flawless, but sometimes, God Almighty permits such occurrences.

I’ve been accused of financial misconduct during my tenure as the petroleum minister, and it’s true. However, I would like President Bola Tinubu and Nigerians to forgive me, allow me to return home, and contribute because life is transient.”

She went on to mention her association with Dauda Lawal Dare, the current governor of Zamfara State, to whom she entrusted over 9 billion dollars for safekeeping while he served as the Executive Director of First Bank Nigeria PLC.

She said, “My husband and my entire family members including my Nigeria lawyer based in the United Kingdom knew my relationship with Dauda Lawal Dare, the current Zamfara State governor whom I entrusted over 9 billion dollars for safe keeping while he was the Executive Director of the First Bank Nigeria PLC .

“Unfortunately, it has now come to a point that Mr Dauda Lawal is no longer picking my phone calls and even worked in Collaboration with UK police to put me under Surveillance, may be to claim the money I entrusted to him when I die.”

SaharaReporters had in October reported that a court in UK is trying Alison-Madueke over bribery allegations.

The Westminster Magistrates Court adjourned hearing on the suit involving Alison-Madueke for allegedly accepting a £100,000 bribe.
The UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA) stated in August 2023 that they suspected Alison-Madueke of accepting bribes in exchange for awarding multi-million pound oil and gas contracts.

The NCA stated on its website that Alison-Madueke “is alleged to have benefited from at least £100,000 in cash, chauffeur-driven cars, private jet flights, luxury vacations for her family, and the use of multiple London properties.”

Meanwhile, the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Lateef Fagbemi, SAN, submitted a warrant of arrest and request to the Crown Prosecution Services of the United Kingdom for the urgent extradition of Allison-Madueke.

EFCC had on October 2, revealed that it had commenced extraditing Mrs Alison-Madueke from the United Kingdom back to Nigeria over 13-count charges bordering on money laundering levelled against her by the anti-graft agency.

Fellow Nairalanders, if you don't hear from me again, just know that I fainted after hearing 9 BILLION DOLLARS given by an ordinary minister to a bank director in this country where millions are dying of poor health, hunger, ignorance, etc that the money could have adequately provided for. And, this is just ONE out of thousands of such illicit transactions mortgaging our future while we are here stupidly busy with shallow inter-ethnic banters.

My second fainting reason is to realize how many criminal-minded people are getting into the positions to decide our affairs. Imagine someone who became a bank director - and now governor - couldn't respect himself enough to not be involved in stealing?!? Oh Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Dieziani's eyes might actually look like Tinubu's eyes cool

Those who were even clamoring for her extradition back in 2015 didn't seem to be informed. Here in Nigeria, the case will drag on for endless years until everyone forgets about it. I'm sure she's currently regretting fleeing Nigeria in the first place.

The armed robbers who pillaged Nigeria's commonwealth during Goodluck's administration and are still in Nigeria, how many of them are currently in jail, after more than 8 years??

Did I read the part in bold correctly or my eyes are paining me? As in $9 billion or N9billion?

How did she get as much as $9 billion? How did we move from this level of mind boggling corruption under Diezani to the current revelations about Emefiele? Why do we keep throwing up extremely greedy characters like these as leaders?

If she’s willing to cooperate for the recovery of the $9 billion, I think President Tinubu should allow her come back. That kind of money can help us stabilize the exchange rate immediately.

So you believed this? Which Nigerian bank can warehouse 9Billion dollars? Have you worked in a bank before?

The money doesn’t have to be in a Nigerian bank. Dare Lawal is just a front that is in charge. The money could have been wired to different countries for safe keeping. What’s important now is that the allegation should be thoroughly investigated and recovery made if true.

Not believing at this stage is premature. Let Dare Lawal come out and deny before you start helping him to deny. A lot of us previously dismissed some of the allegations against Emefiele during the Buhari administration but we now know better. No reasonable Nigerian should be against investigating an allegation like this. An allegation made personally by a former minister of petroleum who is ready to cooperate with investigators.

Again, Dare Lawal has been reported to be extremely wealthy. So, how did a former First bank ED become so wealthy? This allegation makes a lot of sense as we can easily connect the dots between his unexplained wealth and Diezani’s loot.

Typographical error of course. N9b, she meant, not $9b.

But this whole report stinks like fake news. Because anybody who believes that a mere minister can steal $9b is extremely stupid.

9 billion dollars. More than all the state annual budget... 1 billion less than dangote net worth. Mike adenuga and Otedola's network nor reach that amount
This woman is stunningly rich. Imagine how much Jonathan could have stolen. If a minister has up to $9 billion as part of her loots(2% of her loot), imagine how much the president could have stolen.

Most states in America annual budget nor even smell that amount. Imagine how much emefiele got too.

No wonder Jonathan was frolicking with Buhari and Tinubu, just to avoid probe. Even Tinubu's own is too much, considering how he masterminded his fall.

You may be surprised to know that Tinubu stole even more from Lagos State.

And I dey nairaland dey argue with hungry people.
