She was later pushed into party politics and became the Minister of Information and Communications. This was greeted with so much reservations but she carried on and thereafter thought of the “rebranding” Nigeria project. The idea got more knocks than kudos because of suspicions that it was not borne out of sincerity by our political leadership. She had earlier picked up quarrel with Ernest Ndukwe, the NCC Vice-Chairman. Thereafter, she was engulfed in an N8.2billion NTA equipment refurbishing saga which she informed the nation was for the coverage of the Under-17 World Cup being hosted by Nigeria. NTA did not only fail to get the broadcast right but also did not feature any of the played matches. The equipments still have not arrived Nigeria.

Then the Yar’adua ill-health saga arrived and she tried to defend the president but when she realised the tide was not moving in favour of the president she started advocating for his removal. This pitched her against the former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Michael Aondoakaa. She tried calling Anambra PDP stakeholders to an Abuja meeting. It was a flop as it was greeted with apathy that left her ignored by the expected attendees. She was not qualified to call such meeting, she was told. She is now being described as an opportunist. One hopes she smarts her way out of these and thereafter learns to play it cool and right.
