Okonjo-iweala Distances Self From 2019 Campaign Poster, Political Speculation


BEVERLY HILLS, December 07, (THEWILL) РA former Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has debunked media reports and speculations presenting her as nursing an ambition to run for the 2019 presidential election, stating that she is busy with important international duties.

Noting that sponsors of the political speculation have designed a fake

campaign poster embossed with her image in a bid to invest their efforts with phony credibility, she denied discussing or endorsing anybody with regards to the 2019 election.

In a statement issued on Tuesday by her media consultant, Paul Nwabuikwu, the ex-minister said, “This is to clarify that Dr Okonjo-Iweala who is busy with important international duties has absolutely nothing to do with these¬†speculations and activities.”

“We urge the Nigerian media and public to ignore this mischievous¬†exercise and its sponsors,” Okonjo-Iweala added.
