“The Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of Finance, Nigeria, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, wishes to clarify that the Twitter handle @NOkonjoIweala does not belong to her, and is not associated with her in any form.
Whilst the account has not been noted for any negativity, it is yet important to make this clarification for intents of public awareness.
As she first settles to driving the government’s Transformation Agenda for the economy in line with her assignment, the minister looks forward to
beginning a conversation, especially with young Nigerians whom she is passionate about, in the coming weeks. That conversation will begin via the handle – @NOIweala.
“We have contacted Twitter to make a formal notification and are also calling on the person behind the account to please contact us
immediately,” added her Senior Special Assistant on Communication, Paul Nwabuikwu.”
