The Director General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has debunked speculations that she said she came “under attack” after her visit to President Bola Tinubu.
DAILY POST recalls that the WTO boss met with President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Tuesday.
After her visit, rumours broke on social media that she said she was under attack over her visit to the president.
However, reacting via her Twitter handle on Wednesday, Okonjo-Iweala said the statement was “wickedly false and designed to create mischief among Nigerians.”
She wrote, “It has just been brought to my attention that there is a false statement circulating on WhatsApp attributed to me saying that I am being attacked for my visit to President Tinubu. That statement circulating is false; in fact, in fact wickedly false designed to create mischief among Nigerians. Please disregard the statement [sic].
