It’s Fake News, I’m Not Bringing Investors To Nigeria – Okonjo-Iweala Declares

The World Trade Organization’s (WTO) director-general, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has denied sending a WhatsApp message in which she claimed to be courting investors for Nigeria.

Okonjo-Iweala allegedly said in the WhatsApp chat that she was luring investors to the nation by using the president’s admirable policies as bait.

“I am bringing investors to Nigeria using the president’s commendale policies as a bait. Is that too difficult to understand? President Tinubu’s reforms might be harsh now but they would birth a new and prosperous nation,” the post reads.

“I have lost count of residents, respected institutions and investors that have called to congratulate me on Nigeria eventually having focused leader since the reforms were rolled out.
