Okonjo-Iweala raises alarm over alleged doctored video
The Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has drawn public attention to an alleged doctored video of her last appearance before the House of Representatives Committee on Finance.
According to her, the video has been doctored to portray her adversarial to the leadership of the House.
According to statement by her media aide, Mr Paul Nwabuikwu, the video, which has been uploaded by an online medium, is substantially different from the one which was independently captured and broadcast by a popular private television, which many Nigerians have seen.
The statement said the video uploaded by the online medium was edited to leave out important aspects with the clear intention to make the minister look like the aggressor during the appearance.
Describing this portrayal as false, the statement pointed out that many aspects of the encounter, which captured the provocation of the Chair of the Committee were edited out to give a wrong impression.
