Nigeria’s former Finance Minister Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala and Edo state Governor Adams Oshiomhole, have been attacking each other in a war of words especially since the arms deal scandal was unveiled. Also, Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has demanded answers to the 11 questions thrown at the ex-minister on what happened to the money recovered from Abacha’s loot.
Following an online report which surfaced accusing the former minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala of illegally diverting N61.4 billion from the loot of late head of state Sani Abacha, which was returned to Nigeria in January 2015, the ex-minister defended herself by issuing a substantial explanation stating that any attempt to link her efforts to any purpose other than security was baseless and frowned at the fact that she was being targeted by “corrupt interests” whose objective was to tarnish her image.
Many believed her explanation while some others still have doubts concerning the explanation she dished out. However, Ben Bruce has announced his reaction to the allegation against the former Nigeria’s former Finance Minster Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala through a tweet he shared recently.
Below is the photo and tweet of Ben Murray Bruce depicting him and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s husband kissing her cheek at The Beast of No Nation premiere in Lagos yesterday, which he said depicts his reaction to the allegation against the female economy Wizard of Nigeria, Okonjo Iweala.
His tweet reads:
Somebody asked me what my reaction is to the allegation against @NoIweala. Well this is my reaction
Here is Ben’s tweet and photo depicting his reaction to the said allegation:
He couldn’t have expressed his reaction about the whole attempt to damage the long preserved and well-developed integrity and reputation of Dr Ngozi any better.
