   1. Allison-Madueke: well we have to start with someone, and OMG is she a good starter! Dieziani Allison-Madueke has been in the spotlight for over a year now, in fact her name and personality could define corruption completely.
   One of the most troublesome tails in former president Goodluck Jonathan's administration, these woman has been in scandals involving seven to eight figures!

O:- Before her arrest in London on october 2, 2015 American and British officials leaked out that the former minister for petroleum had diverted state funds amounting to about N1 trn from the Nigerian treasury.

She was accused of blowing over 600million naira renovating her personal house and that of her deputy. She was also accused of purchasing cars for the Representative members without permission. She still got backed up by the president then- Gen.Olusegun Obasanjo, though she was forced to resign when the criticisms turned up higher.
