In 2011, she submitted her résumé to the Nigerian Senate as a ministerial nominee. It highlighted that she was awarded a Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA) from the Saint Paul’s College, Lawrenceville, Virginia, USA.
Sahara Reporters recently contacted the Office of the President of the College. It was revealed that the school in its 125-year history has never had a graduate school or program. “We don’t offer any graduate programs here,” the Provost Vice President of Institutional Development said in response to the enquiries by the news agency.
After the news was made public, Premium Times ran a story that Stella Oduah and her team are scrambling to cover up her tracks by deleting all information on her educational background from the internet. Her profile page on Facebook was edited and all traces of St. Paul’s College was removed from the account. It was also removed from her Wikipedia page and her biography on the Ministry of Aviation website.
