How Oil Minister Dieziani Madueke Benefits Billions From Oil Subsidy Funds + The Reckless and Extravagant Lifestyle of Her Step-Children

2 min read

Though the dust raised by the removal of fuel subsidy on January 1st by the federal government is gradually fading away, the action or inaction of some people that participated in the whole drama that nearly brought the country to her kneels is coming out, with accusations and counter accusations from the actors and actresses in the subsidy scam.
While the crisis was raging like a harmattan inferno, many people were giving reasons why government must remove the subsidy, saying that the country is in a comatose state and that if care is not taken, the economy will collapse.
One of the spokespersons of government is the incumbent Minister of Petroleum, Dieziani Alison-Madueke, who went all out to defend the policy, stressing that some people corner the benefits rather than the masses who the subsidy is meant for.
While the debate was going on between government and the civil society groups, one group told the general public how Haruna Momoh, the Managing Director of PPMC and Dieziani Madueke had been demanding and pocketing N50 on each litre of kerosene and petrol produced by local refineries since January 2011 till date
The group alleged that though the minister and the PPMC boss told the marketers that the money was their contribution to the campaign of President Jonathan, the illegal contribution still exists even after the election.
Aside this, the group stated, the govt should probe Nezor SA and Tridax SA, two companies owned by the Petroleum Minister which are run by her junior brother. These two companies in the last 16 month of her tenure have emerged from nowhere to become part of the few companies lifting crude oil and two of the largest beneficiaries of the subsidy.
This group also wants Nigeria to probe the new list of briefcase companies now lifting crude oil because they paid a minimum of $1 million to Momoh and Deziani.
The minister has however come out on several occasions to refute this allegation and others, claiming that those peddling the rumours are just all out to destroy her reputation and malign her name.
To buttress that the minister has more than more enough to throw around with her children while Nigerians suffer, photos obtained reveal that the step-children of Nigeria’s Oil Minister,  Diezani Alison-Madueke, are living like kings in America , complete with private jet travels, luxury ship vacations, frolicking with local and international superstars such as D’banj, Neyo and Cecil Hammond. Though she claimed that the country is broke, her children have the best of life, spending extravagantly and enjoying life to the hilt.
However, the relationship of music star D Banj with Dieziani’s kids has made him to be one of those briefcase marketers who are said to be lifting oil courtesy of madam minister

  1. People should fear God as everything will come to an end one day but what will God says and Nigeria people .

We love you…

    1. sam amaechi obi,u hav disappoint nija pple nd Almighty God wll judge both of u.pple re suffering nd u re sidin dis useless woman with no any human feelin,no God fearin.imagin Dbanj liftin oil,ah u pple hav killed nija.if mr.incompetent president didnt do any thing God wll never b happy wt him.dat useless woman has 2 b removed nd dat of finance dey re just women wat did dey hav nothin.

    2. Amaechi, God will forgive you for this comment you posted for world to see. how can she explain the N50 that is going to her pocket from kerosene since 2011 till date and many more? thousands Nigerian are living in abject poverty even in her family, we have people that can’t not afford three square meal in a day. yet, her children are living extravagant life. God ll forgive those of you that are supporting evil.

    3. Daniel Joseph, am sure u re foreigner. U need deportation 2 ur country. U re mere psychophant. Are u an aide 2 d dishonourable minister? If u re a nigerian, then u one of dose benefiting 4rm dis whole chaos nigerians re going thru 2day. Tell ur ‘miss madueke’ 2 resign now.

    4. I am 100% sure that Sam Amaechi is not your real name, i know your are Diezani’s son, shame on you for hiding behind a false name. Ole

  3. If this is true, I am sad and as a woman I think she did not do her job properly as a stepmother, buying the kids (big kids) with money is not it, she has failed. And who is the husband, he should be wipped publicly
    Moreover she is to refund every kobo, while still working under scrutiny, she is smart so she should help the country up, since she contributed in pulling it down. God help us from greedy people like these, amen.

    1. I will be Glad if u guys can publish better information that will add value to fellow Nigerians. Mrs Madueke did not just get rich becos she was made a minister of petroleum. She has seen good money as a director in SPDC. Her dear husband is also not a poor man. He was a one time Governor of Anambra state in Nigeria He rose to the ranks in the Navy. This is a family that enjoys the best of life.
      Lets reflect more on this useless Boko Haram issue than looking for who to distroy.

  4. madam not if the story is true,if u wnt 2 knw thief she wl b frontin so dat dey wl nt get her bt God is nw ready 2 deliver nija frm de wickeds.she is a bad woman wt dat of finance.they hav nothing 2 offer.

  5. Nothing will happen, Deziani will continue to steal and spend and chop life recklessly as long as Jonathan remains President. And there is nothing that Fat witch parading herself as First Lady can do about it, nothing go happen.

  6. @ biodun,there is Nothing to confirm ….this is just a story of a failure and unsuccessful man…. A man who has failed so many times and doesn’t have nothing any more to do,but to sit around and cook a story

  7. if this is confirmed true then nigerians need another round of prayer and fasting for this country to ever experience development shikenah

  8. There is a recurring pattern to your comments that betrays ethnic allegiance rather than objectivity. It is a pity. If you do not change this position, it won’t be worthwhile to visit this site any longer. The hausas and yorubas are vitriolous while the ibos are apologetic and defensive because of the geo-political background of the personality involved. Somebody who has been rich by occupying a plum oil portfolio in the past can still be greedy and corrupt in a subsequent designation. So, it is illogical to lean on this premise as a valid basis for your arguments. What is at issue here is for the common citizens’ future to be safeguarded and not viciously mortgaged to perpetuate a hellish brand of living. If she is a good woman, which I do not doubt, let’s see it in her comments, actions and responses to critical public issues such as ‘the diversion of oil subsidy’. We do not deserve this subsisting executive treatment. The living conditions of citizens of other major oil-producing countries are far much better than ours. This has to stop. I hope that this humble and passionate appeal will prick their conscience and that of their good-spirited children who can goad them to early repentance before a violent revolution consumes them all as experienced by gaddafi and his family in libya. I believe they can read the handwriting on the wall: ”The anger of nigerians are boiling over”.

  9. @ sam obi am so dissapionted when i hear people like you talk. Even if this woman happen to be the richest nigerian befor she became petroleum minister. her actions have actually showed that she has skeleton in her wadrobe. because an illitrate will know that nigeria does not need to import more petrol than what it requires daily and yet again pay susbisdy on such. honestly she has no moral justification to still be the minister of peroleum so instead of supporting her based on what youre benefiting from them its better to just keep mute.

  10. God will purnish this woman 100m times she said on the national tv our hands are tied , i will fuck her in the mouth and anus u don’t deserve to live one minute

    ur papa i finish school since 2006 no job and u sit there and say nonsense boko-haram will visit u soon

  11. Maduke is beta to resign cos u re d one of d pple dat re trying to spoil ur country and economy. And d cabal we’re hearin about , dis witness dat u re d boss cabalist.

  12. QUITE UNFORTUNATE, WE ARE IN THE IRON HAND OF THE GREEDIEST ELEMENTS. WE NEEDED A STRONG TREATMENT FOR INCURABLE GREED. MOST TIME IT MIGHT BE A PAINFUL ONE…….. JERRY RAWLING APPROACH MIGHT NOT BE RULED OUT OTHERWISE THEY WILL STRANGULATE NIGERIA. NIGERIA WILL RISE AGAIN………BUT………..

  13. MAKAVELI OR WATEVER YOU CALL YOUR SELF. HOW DO YOU EXPECT TO GET A GOOD JOB WITH A B.SC, PASS IN ISLAMIC STUDIES. WERE DO YOU WANT TO WORK, IN AN OIL COMPANY? FOR GOD’S SAKE, THIS WOMAN HOLDS A FIRST DEGREE IN ARCHITECTURE FROM WALDEN UNIVERSITY IN UK AND A MASTERS DEGREE IN ARCHITECTURE IN THEUK TOO. SHE GOT A JOB IB SHELL AND ROSE TO THE POSITION OF AN EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR. SHE HAS MADE MONEY, SHE DIDN’T START SEEING CASH TODAY. SO SHOT UP AND TAKE YOUR ISLAMIC CERTIFICATE WITH B.SC PASS TO GET A JOB WITH THE BOKO HARAM GUYS.ENEMY OF PROGRESS.

    1. shut up! if u dont see any reason y someone with Islamic studies will be in oil ministry then wat of an architect? no be same. she suppose to draw houses now

  14. Alison Madueke,time is the best justice and history shall never tell the future good about you,but that which you did,also your children are there wasting their future and nothing shall be good with you and them…you shall never find peace in your life…May God deliver us.GOD bless sahara repoerts.

  15. @ Daniels Joesph am sure u didn’t go tru a university program bcos ur comment is shoutin ignorance and illitracy.. It seems 2 me dt u’re also benefittin 4rm d Maduekes or hope 2 by supportin their course…

  16. My advice is that life is so short. We will account b4 our creator what we have done with the privilege He gave us. Lets remember the judgement day.

  17. Nigerian should neither attack nor defend any cabal as there’s always a day of reckony. God’ll expose whoever is responsible for our misfortune in this nation. God bless Nigeria

  18. I”d like that you be more professional in publication of such sensitive and vital news so as to make readers more objective in their comments and critical thinking.It should also capture the response of the Dezieni on this issue so as to keep a balanced and more relible repotage.

  19. it’s very unfortunate that mischievous element on special selfish mission best known to them or vendetta will always hijack situations to do their bids. For goodness sake, this is a phantom story cook to pollute the minds of Nigerians against the persons in qestion. What has the paraded pictures to do with the subsidy investigation. Deziani was an achiever before becomming a minister. If you have any fact or evidence, pls the floor is open, come out for a proof at the ongoing investigation in the national assembly as some patriotic Nigerians like Femi Falano, Agbakoba etc has done. Don’t sponsor these acts in the dark. Deziani is legible to answer for herself, if she’s found culpable, let her squarely face justice.. including other lingering curruption cases of ex-governors, ministers, former house of reps members and a whole lot of them….

    1. i read some of the comments and ethnic slurs and insults on this page with amusement. while i would not throw decency to the wind and join issues with those pouring vituperation on islam and northerners, it seems to me that nigerians are a gullible lot. how can we expect anything good to come out of the recent fuel subsidy scam when mrs diezieni is a judge in her own case. we have long been hearing rumours of some briefcase carrying people from the niger delta with the active connivance and probably fronting for the first lady being allocated fuel import licenses from a paltry 5-6 companies with adequate facilities for fuel storage, now any niger deltan with access to the first family is fuel impoter MAY GOD almighty give us leaders with the fear of GOD whereever they may come from .

  20. well,this issue should b subjected 2 proper scrutiny so as ascertain its level of authenticity.it may b true or false.hweva der is serious mess in d petroleum sector.

  21. Bayelsa as a veri rice in allocation, poor in development God wil save this peaceful state

  22. Very soon the rich man or woman will be parted with his money, It is only a fool that does not beleive there is God above. I know that no amount of meney that can give you one extra day when God will require your soul. The saddest thing is that you will not go with a dime, too bad. The poor and he rich go down 6 feet.

  23. i wonder wen we nigerians wil ever be reasonable, if one person is looking for favour they just open their mouth & talk trash or go on facebook or twitter & write rots, if Diezani is innocent of the things she is accused of dont u think she would have sued the news paper cooperation that published this story?, it is said that no smoke without fire, she doesent want to sue or make a big case bcos there is an element of truth in what she is accused of. if nigerian is so good, why did she choose to send her children & step children to america to school & live ther? Amaechi, u should be ashamed of the cheap favours u ask, cos people like you sell the country for penny. repent

  24. Re: A wicked attack on my person via internet photographs. – Ugonna Madueke-

    It was with great dismay that I awoke a few days ago to see the pictorial publications being circulated about my family and me by the on-line media. It has stirred up a great deal of controversy and has portrayed our family in a negative light.The pictures posted were taken over a period of time, some before my mother left the private sector as an ED at Shell to work for the Nigerian government. Although I benefited from a comfortable upbringing I was raised in a fairly strict environment by a military father who insisted that we worked to support ourselves whilst in school. He ensured that we had the basic minimum to support us covering tuition food and transport only.

    We were all compelled to work to support ourselves and at the same time excel academically. I am a fully qualified engineer who has worked in my area of expertise for the last 2 and half years. I work very hard at my job and like many people across the globe I also party hard.

    The pictures of my brother with Neyo and Dbanj are typical of the way any young man or woman will react getting somewhat excited when they run into stars whether they be home grown or international. Most people will be more than happy to have their photograph taken with them.

    As far as the limo ride goes, they are commonly used as airport taxis overseas. Occasionally myself along with my friends and family chip in to pay approx $100 from the airport to our destination. To put this in context it is approximately N16, 500. There were 6 of us in the limo ride, which worked out to be roughly N2000 per head.

    With regards to the picture of me in the airplane, which by the way was shot almost 2 years ago, the explanation is really quite simple. I was in America to attend the wedding of an old classmate whose parents had chartered a small aircraft to take some of the bride’s closest friends and family to the destination. I did what anyone in my shoes would do and took a picture, Facebook is a testament to that.

    It has been alleged that my family flew to America to attend a party, The event we attended was the Chris Aire event for the unveiling of NIGERIA’S GEM STONES with my Mother in her capacity as the then Minister of Mines & Steel. It was an event designed to promote Nigerian Gem stones.The picture of us on the Red Carpet as we attended the event has also being published. I struggle to fully understand how something that was intended to showcase Nigerian talent and products is now seen as wrong. She also honoured an invitation at the London Stock Exchange to make a presentation; a clear indication that the Gemstone event at Los Angeles had started attracting foreign investors.The picture showing members of my university fraternity and I holding some money was taken several years ago, while I was an undergraduate. It was a requirement of the society that we documented our fund raising success for a charitable course on behalf of the society I belonged to in the university. The society is called Alpha – Phi – Alpha University of Maryland Chapter.Like any young man, I have had my fair share of fun, hanging out and partying I am grateful for the upbringing that I have had. This does not however mean I am immune from the realities of the plight of millions of Nigerians living at or below the poverty line. If the pictures (published out of context) were intended to portray me or my family as insensitive to the plight of millions of Nigerians I can honestly state that this is by no means who we are.What this has taught me however is that, with positions of privilege and leadership come humility and responsibility not only by those in leadership but members of their extended family also.I sincerely apologise to my family and the Nigerian public for any hurt, anger or embarrassment that might have been caused by these pictures, which were taken completely out of context. I will endeavor to ensure that all my actions in future will be sensitive to the plight of all.However I have absolutely no control over this well orchestrated smear campaign, which is mainly directed at my mother, I therefore appeal to Nigerians not to take everything they see or read at face value.

    1. Boy Madueke,
      The treatment you are exposed to now is part of the package of being related to a public SERVANT, so just enjoy it while it last. I do not sympathise with you.

  25. The internet is free for all… that any one can publish trashes. I came across a publication sometime ago with a portrait of a lady and a caption “HOW I ROMANCE WITH PASTOR ADEBOYE”or vise versa. With due respect to the man of God, It was quite ridiculous on one side but attracted serious attention & rushes. I also purchased.. but realized later that it was an orchestrated fallacy employed to attract public interest & sympathizers. The lady said,”she had in her dream …bla, bla ,bla…the cock and bull story”and a responsible media, so to say, made it a front burner news. We should be carefull with some of these publication & cautious with our reactions.

  26. God will inflict all the bad leaders in nigeria with sickness that will kill them and their families. Amen.. useless people…

  27. A woman who was önce an external manager of shell and trained in Havard must have very poor.What a ridiculous story,tell such to d marines pls.foolish baseless tales by moonlight

  28. D minister had worked in d industry,she has supported subsidy removal which has not gone down well in some quarters hence attack on d person of d minister.We realised recently dat some opposition to subsidy removal was 4 selfish reasons,so one tactics is to try to smear pple in authority.ekpomkpo,eke kpa ke ikot ebot

  29. I am getting ashamed of the personal attacks going on in the comments here.

    we should be concerned that a few Nigerians are destroying the present and future of the rest of us by their greedy, self-centred and hedonistic lives.

    We should learn to call evil by its name and not try and justify it for whatever twisted personal reasons we think we have.
    If truly the minister’s step-children are living this kind of life style with her bank-rolling them then she cannot claim to love them. You do not deliberately set out to destroy people you love by excessive indulgence especially when it is at the detriment of other people.

  30. I cannot exonerate Dame Dieziani from allegations of corruption because of the primitive tendency of the average Nigerian to abuse privileged positions. But at the same time I think we should use common sense to assess the veracity of allegations before swallowing them as facts. Throughout last year. I bought kerosene at the price of 85naira per liter. If she took 50naira, what is the profit margin of the filling station? and what is the ex-refinery price of the product?

  31. it is a pity that some bastards are supporting this evil woman and her evil son who came to paint a picture of humility after being scolded at home.
    This story is true and i believe it.She has a right to sue if she knows she is clean.

  32. We’ve had men on that seat that could not come out with the truth for that im 100% for her. We are all aware that she made her money before given this position and its her own decision to take care of her family the way she wish.

  33. The young man, Ugonna, with all sense of responsibility made his point which should be clear to all as an honest admission of the facts on ground. I honestly commend his sense of responsibility and want everyone out there to excuse whatever might be perceived as a slip. He should be commended for saying it the way it is. I am proud of him and pleased with his side of the story. He is courageous to admit, albeit, with humility that no one is infallible and would henceforth watch his public conduct because of the public people involved. The Nigerian society must not crucify him.

  34. Nigerians!!! always mad at people who are doing better. for the jobs she has held in the past decades, her family can afford to live very well. I saw the pictures and realised I know the boy, ugo in the picture. He wasnt my friend but we acknowledged each other, on a CORRECT BOY, basis. I had an idea his mum was somewhat important in Nigeria, but didnt realise she was who she is. And honestly now that I know I respect them because they were humble kids, they could afford to do way more than they did, and yes they worked. you idiots making remarks would have done way more than they did, knowing now who they are, they actually did not live like they should have. I would be damned if my mum was minister of petroleum and I drove around in a nissan armanda truck that I had to share, when there are cars called bentleys and range rovers, and I damn sure would not live across from pg plaza. so you idiots leave them alone, my father was not a minster and I lived better. I sure didnt have to work when I went to howard university.some real s***t for that ass

  35. Am proud of ugonna for tking time to make his explanations…and I believe he’s a well brought up child.
    If these are old pix, and his mum being former ED shell, then nothing repulsive there. But ugo, how about now? Is your mum involved in shady deals and actions that could tarnish your family’ name?
    For your sake, I pray she’s innocent.

  36. Sam, “you fuked up” for you statement, trying to defend the minister and her family. can picture lie? Didn’t you see those picture as an evidence of what the writer was talking about.
    Am sure your are part of the beneficiary of the subsidy money that was channeled into her private purse.

    Ole!!
