Former minister of finance and coordinating minister of the economy Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has released a disclaimer addressing an audio recording saying she endorsed a candidate for president in the 2019 election.
Writing on her Twitter page, Okonji-Iweala said:
DISCLAIMER Dear friends, My attention has been drawn to a social media viral as well as an audio recording (a very poor imitation of my voice) where I supposedly endorse a candidate for president in the coming elections. Please disregard these as brain candies of mischief-makers.
I endorse no one. Each candidate should run on the credibility of their person and performance, without adding my name to their political campaign. Signed. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
