Former Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy and Current chair of the GAVI Board, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has debunked a story emanating from Biafra propagandists using her name for credence.
Writing via her Twitter account, the Twitter Board member said, “DISCLAIMER: My attention has been drawn to a fake news making the rounds claiming I made a statement on Biafra. It is false and mischievous. Please disregard it. Thank you.”
The badly written clickbait headline from the Biafra sources implied that Okonjo-Iweala bragged that she would make Biafra the fourth richest country in the world.
The news story, however, had no attribution or verifiable source.
As at the time of writing this report, the main source of the false story had pulled it down from their site.
