As she continues to be plagued by illness and corruption investigations, former Minister of Petroleum, Mrs. Diezani Allison-Madueke is making plans to return to Nigeria.
Diezani, who had flown to London after the end of her tenure as minister, had first been arrested by a UK law enforcement agency, before moving to a London hospital after being diagnosed with cancer.
She has reportedly been bedridden and isn’t responding to treatment, and according to Daily Post, wants to seek spiritual help from Pastor T.B. Joshua.
“They have decided to fly her back into the country this Friday to seek for spiritual help. The condition worsened last weekend and she personally asked the family to return her to the country,” the newspaper quoted a family source as saying.
“She has not tasted any solid food since last Monday. She did not speak throughout Thursday. When she eventually spoke Friday morning, she ordered them to return her to the country to visit Prophet T. B Joshua for prayers.”
Mrs Allison-Madueke had previously denied any form of money laundering during her tenure as Petroleum minister.
