Remember we brought you the poster above tagging it a ‘Political Joke’, but was also fast to ask if it was real. Some of you advised her not to pair with Atiku saying she could go for the post of the President herself. Her camp has however responded and below is what they sent us. If you missed the first post, see it here.
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.
