Immediate past Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has disowned a trending an audio recording of a woman pretending to be her, declaring it to be fake.

Her Media Adviser Paul C Nwabuikwu said in a statement issued Thursday afternoon in Abuja: “It has come to our attention that an audio recording of a woman pretending to be Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has been circulating on various online and other platforms.

“In the contrived audio, the impostor makes several claims and expresses certain views which have absolutely nothing to do with Dr Okonjo-Iweala.

“Anyone familiar with the former Finance Minister can confirm that the voice, the diction and the opinions are not hers.

“The Nigerian public and media should take note and avoid being deceived by this inept and ridiculous gimmick.”
