Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala denies endorsing 2019 presidential candidate

Former minister of finance and coordinating minister of the economy Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has released a disclaimer addressing an audio recording credited to her. The voice in the audio endorsed a candidate for president in the 2019 election and the former minister used her twitter handle to dissociate herself from the viral audio.

Writing on her Twitter page, Okonji-Iweala said:

DISCLAIMERDear friends,My attention has been drawn to a social media viral as well as an audio recording (a very poor imitation of my voice) where I supposedly endorse a candidate for president in the coming elections.Please disregard these as brain candies of mischief-makers.

I endorse no one.

Each candidate should run on the credibility of their person and performance, without adding my name to their political campaign.

— Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala (@NOIweala) July 10, 2018

This would not be the first time Okonjo would have to dissociate herself from and refute political claims made on audio and ascribed to her. In 2016, a Facebook statement was released by her Media Adviser, Paul C Nwabuikwu addressing a similar circumstance.
