A former Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, has spoken on a well-circulated report where she was quoted to have declared her support for President Muhammadu Buhari.

The former Minister described the report as false, adding that it was the handiwork of desperate people.

She was quoted to have said that the ex-Generals were ‘murmuring’ because they know Buhari won’t renew their oil blocs

Mrs. Iweala was also said to have stated that socio-cultural groups were angry because no more Ghana Must Go bags to support Buhari.

On the newspaper page, she was also quoted to have attacked royal fathers; corrupt religious leaders; corrupt legislators; corrupt civil servants, and so on.

But sharing the newspaper’s page on Twitter, Ngozi warned that more of such news may still be circulated, but they should be considered fake.

She tweeted, “This is false and in line with other false messages, including the audio that was released previously.

“Please note that similar mischievous messages may circulate but it is the work of desperate people.”
