Nigeria’s wanted fugitve, Mrs Diezani Allison Madueke has been appointed as Commissioner for Trade and Investment by the government of the Commonwealth of Dominican Republic.
Diezani who was the former Minister of Petroleum during the erstwhile President Goodluck Jonathan escaped out of the country before she was declared wanted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Her appointment as Commissioner for Trade and Investment by Roosevelt Skerrit, the Prime Minister of Commonwealth of Dominican Republic followed approval of her citizenship of the Dominica, a Caribbean Island, reports indicated.
Diezani Madueke is on watch list of Economic and Financial Crime Commission( EFCC), Nigeria’s anti-graft agency for alleged money laundering with long legal fireworks over her extradition to face charges in Nigeria without success.
It’s still unclear if this new development would affect the extradition of former Minister, but a public affairs analyst who spoke with our correspondent explained that it has become practically impossible and the remaining are history for the extradition of the wanted fugitive as she has become a citizen of another country eventually.
Diezani was issued a diplomatic passport, DP0000445 by the Dominican Government on May 21.2015 shortly before the handover to President Muhammadu Buhari by ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
Her citizenship was confirmed by a May 29, 2015 approval letter by the Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit.
The Prime Minister’s letter to Diezani reads in part “I am pleased to confirm your appointment as Trade and Investment Commissioner for the Commonwealth of Dominica.
“Please note that this posting does not attract a remunerative package. In that respect, I am particularly encouraged by your willingness to serve.
“The appointment of a Trade and Investment Commissioner is consistent with my Government’s declared intention to have a permanent and active presence in the global business and financial sector operations. We believe that Dominica can benefit immeasurably from your illustrious record and profession success, and knowledge of investments and business operations.
“As Trade and Investment Commissioner, your scope of operation would revolve around the direct promotion and marketing of Dominica as a trade and investment domicile, as well as an emerging and unique tourist destination in the Caribbean.
