Former Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has described as false claims that she submitted a “dossier of corrupt deals” allegedly perpetrated by the Goodluck Jonathan administration to President Muhammadu Buhari.
She said those behind the misinformation were not happy because she tried to bring integrity and transparency to the management of Nigeria’s public finances, which obviously did not suit their interests.
In a statement issued by her media adviser, Mr. Paul C Nwabuikwu, in Abuja yesterday, the former said “the recent report by the integrity-challenged website, Sahara Reporters and some other media that former Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has handed over a ‘dossier of corrupt deals’ perpetrated by the Jonathan administration to President Buhari is completely false and without foundation.
“This sponsored lie is part of the political attack by the pay masters of Sahara Reporters against Dr. Okonjo-Iweala.
“These attacks will continue, given that these individuals are bent on a political and personal vendetta against her.
“Why are they angry? It is simply because she tried to bring integrity and transparency to the management of Nigeria’s public finances which obviously did not suit their interests.
“Sahara Reporters which has a long history of publishing falsehoods and distortions against Okonjo-Iweala is a paid tool of these individuals.
“But the lies of Saharareporters and its cohorts will never stop Okonjo-Iweala from loving her country or make her regret serving it, not once but twice.
“As always, we are confident that the truth shall prevail,” she said.
