Former Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has denied reports that she made utterances against President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to a post on her Facebook wall, the ex-minister said the reports were false.
She wrote, “My attention has been drawn to a spurious and nefarious story circulating on the internet. The story makes false claims of utterances against President Buhari.
“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.”
The January 5 disclaimer was posted on her wall signed by her Media Adviser, Mr Paul Nwabukwu.
“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.’’
