Media Consultant to former Nigerian Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo – Iweala, Paul Nwabuikwu, has dissociated her from the campaign posters making the rounds on social media. The posters suggest that Okonjo – Iweala would be running on the same presidential ticket with former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
Nwabuikwu, in a press statement said: “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.”
