False audio of Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala in circulation

Few days ago, former Minister of Finance Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala alerted the public about a doctored audio recording of a woman pretending to be her which has been circulating online. The former minister described the false audio as an attempt to "deceive, lock horns as well sully her name" that has been circulating online. Below is a statement released today by her Media Adviser:

"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 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 views are not hers. The Nigerian public and media should take note and avoid being deceived by this inept and ridiculous gimmick. Thank you. Paul C Nwabuikwu Media Adviser to Dr Okonjo-Iweala
