Immediate past Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has disclaimed a viral report in which she purportedly endorsed a presidential candidate ahead of the 2019 elections.
In a quick reaction to the endorsement which was an audio recording of the former minister’s voice, Okonjo-Iweala debunked the report, saying each candidate should run on the credibility of their person and performance.
Okonjo-Iweala made this clear via her Twitter handle on Tuesday, calling out mischief-makers for adding her name to their political campaign.
I endorse no one.
Each candidate should run on the credibility of their person and performance, without adding my name to their political campaign.
