2019: Former Finance minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, denies reports of her making political utterances

Former minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has again distanced herself from reports that she has a political ambition come 2019. The former minister, in a email sent to Absolute Hearts, said there had been 'fake news' and 'fake audio recordings' of her making political utterances. See statement below:

It has been brought to my attention that a number of fake news items with my photo and fake voice recordings of me making political utterances are circulating on social media.

I want the public to beware of such fake news items. They are being put out by politically motivated people with malicious intent.

It is the 2019 political season and such people are desperate to destroy and distract for power.

I want to state categorically, as I have always done, that I will not be distracted from the focused international assignments I am engaged with.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
