Former Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has released a statement saying she has nothing to do a presidential campaign poster embossed with her face and name on it.
The fake campaign poster have been seen in some parts of the country.
Her media aide, Paul Nwabuikwu released a statement which reads;
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. Thank you.
