Diezani Alison-Madueke’s stepchildren are more known, but no one seems to be noticing that the former petroleum minister has just 1 biological child with her husband, Rear Admiral Alison Madueke(retd.), former Chief of Naval Staff and ex-military administrator of old Imo and Anambra States.
The reason Diezani’s child has been able to fly so low under the radar is that he is a teenager. Diezani Alison-Madueke inherited 5 children(Chimezie, Ugonna, Chima, Ngozi, and Donald) from her husband’s first marriage. The children lost their mother years before their father remarried the Bayelsan princess in the 1990s. Diezani and Alison’s church wedding held in an Anglican church in Port Harcourt in the ’90s.
For those not in the know, Diezani Alison-Madueke is an Ijaw princess, as her father HRH Frederick Abiye Agama(Ogbotom Edede of the Epie Atissa clan) was in his lifetime a top management staff in Shell before he became a king in Bayelsa. Diezani’s mother is HRH Beatrice Oyete Agama (née Porbeni), she is a sister to Vice-Admiral Festus Bikepere Porbeni(retd.).
