2019: Okonjo-Iweala Denies Fake Campaign Poster

By Ikenga Chronicles December 7, 2016

The Former Minister of Finance and Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala has distanced herself from campaign posters presenting her as a running mate to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in the the 2019 Presidential election.

The reaction came as Atiku Abubakar/Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala campaign posters flooded the social media space.

A statement by her Media Aide, Paul Nwabuikwu on Tuesday stated that “Our attention has been drawn to speculative media stories linking former Minister of Finance, Dr Okonjo-Iweala with the next presidential election scheduled to hold in 2019.”

“In an effort to invest their efforts with phony credibility, those behind the project have even gone to the extent of designing a fake campaign poster embossed with her image.”

“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.”

“She has neither discussed nor endorsed them with anybody.”

“We urge the Nigerian media and public to ignore this mischievous exercise and its sponsors.”
