Immediate past Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, yesterday rubbished “the recent report by the integrity-challenged website, Saharareporters and some other media” that she has handed over a “dossier of corrupt deals” allegedly perpetrated by the Jonathan administration to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The story “is completely false and without foundation,” Okonjo-Iweala’s Media Adviser Paul C Nwabuikwu said.

According to Nwabuikwu in a statement issued in Abuja, “This sponsored lie is part of the political attack by the pay masters of Saharareporters 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.

“Saharareporters, 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.”
