Okonjo-Iweala Denies Handing Over ‘Dossier Of Corrupt Deals’ Under Jonathan To Buhari

okonjo-iwealaq1The immediate past Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has denied handing over any document allegedly containing corrupt transactions under the government of former President Goodluck Jonathan to President Muhammadu Buhari.
It widely reported that the ex-minister had handed a dossier detailing deals considered less than transparent in the last administration.
But in a statement issued by her Media Assistant, Mr. Paul Nwabuikwu on Saturday, Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala said that nothing of the nature transpired between her and President Buhari.
According to the statement, those peddling the story meant to make her regret serving in the Jonathan administration but that they would not succeed.
The statement reads in part, “recent report that former Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has handed over a “dossier of corrupt deals” perpetrated by the Jonathan administration to President Buhari is completely false and without foundation.
“This sponsored lie is part of the political attack by the pay masters 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.
“But the lies 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”.

Adams Oshoimole cannot deny such fallacious allegation. A former labour leader who cannot pay his workers salaries as a current governor is accusing another person of misappropriation.
