      how does she keep winning exactly? enlighten me please? You need to keep your ignorance and stupidity in check. is there light in your house? People keep stealing from right underneath your nose, and you people continue to praise them instead of condemn them.
      Sometimes I feel like nigerians deserve the leaders we get.

      It appears so right ….but its only temporary because this woman must be brought to justice for the damage she’s caused and I think she knows it, that’s why she has escaped to the UK at the moment! Nothing is going to cushion her fall!

      Erm, she”s not winning, as the position she occupies is bestowed upon the country as a member of OPEC. The position ceases to be hers the moment a new Nigerian petroleum resources minister is elected. Enlighten yourself.

    I can’t even hate on this woman, yes indeed she stole, she’s a thief, but why haven’t they arrested her? We keep calling a thief yet she keeps soaring higher… Biko carry go, which one of us won’t steal if we were in her shoes???

      People with better moral standards will not steal. How can you even say that in public? please cover your face in shame because you’ve proven that you are a thief. Call the cops y’all

      So you like to continue the cycle of dishonored people are you proud of yourself. If so you will destroy a nation because of your greed and things that you cannot take to your grave. Everybody dies no matter what. People need to think of the lesson of the past of those who did it before them where are they today. When do you wrong it will catch up with you and your off-springs will/might bear part of it.

    Kirikiri prison loading for her 85% . I can’t wait till after May 29th for her to know that stealing is now corruption.

    DAM ole thief barawo….. Prison is loading for you. Shame on you. See your life, Gej was asked to shush when his campaign team wanted to be selling the ‘he empowered women narrative’ and it is all because of women like you. Ojelu buruku!

    Forbes Africa, like Africa’s rich, lacks integrity. I just shake my head whenever I see the folks they profile.

    when people say the shit “if you were there”, it seriously pisses me off. you are only trying to make yourself feel better by thinking everyone is like you. No! not everyone is a thief! I hold a political position right now but I will not steal what doesn’t belong to me!

    Face of corruption, why Forbes is celebrating or highlighting her beats me! Doesn’t surprise me though , wasn’t it the same Forbes that featured the head of a notorious Mexican drug family on their billionaire list a few years ago? What a joke….

    Stupid comparison! I wonder why celebrate thieves and looters in Nigeria! By God’s grace, that era is past…Diezani will cough out every single kobo she stole very soon. Shameless woman!

    Dear Bella Naija, how things have changed in just 6 months. I am sure that as a blog site you will not feel so proud given all the praise you bestowed on Diezani Alison-Madueke where you re-iterated her views on being a proud African woman. Your website is commendable given what you have achieved, but please be more objective in future when putting forwards women who simply do not epitomise what it means to be a proud African woman.
