2019 Presidency: Stop using me as bait-Okonjo Iweala warns.

 
Former minister of finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala on Wednesday debunked media report that she has intentions to contest the 2019 presi­dential election.
In a statement signed by her media aide, Paul Nwabuikwu and sent to media houses,  she said  “We urge the Nigerian media and public to
ignore this mischievous exercise and its sponsors.”
The Statement is titled:
‘OKONJO-IWEALA HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FAKE 2019 CAMPAIGN POSTER AND POLITICAL SPECULATION’
It 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.
