It Wasn’t Me – Okonjo-Iweala Denies Write-Ups Castigating Buhari
Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has denied social media reports that she made utterances Castigating President Muhammadu Buhari.
She debunked the reports via a post on her Facebook wall declaring that the reports were false.
“I had earlier debunked the same fake news on Jan 5, 2017, but it is obviously in some people’s interest to see this falsehood circulate again,” she wrote.
THEWILL recalls that the Minister had on January 5 posted a disclaimer, signed by her Media Adviser, Paul Nwabukwu, on her wall over the report.
“The comments on the performance of the Nigerian economy being circulated by unknown persons and attributed to Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala were not made by her,” Nwabukwu wrote.
“Like the previous fake audio by an imposter pretending to be her, this is another desperate action by mischievous persons.
“The former Minister doesn’t need anyone to speak for her because, as everyone knows, she is very capable of speaking for herself.
“We urge the media and Nigerian public to ignore these petty gimmicks.’’
