I have no fear for Buhari - Okonjo Iweala

MINISTER of Finance Ngozi Onkojo- Iweala said yesterday that she is not scared of President Muhammadu Buhari probing her.

Okonjo-Iweala spoke in a statement while responding to what she considered an attack on her by Edo state Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

She said: “There is no substance in the wild allegations that any money is missing from the account or that finances of the country under Okonjo-Iweala’s watch have not been well managed.”

The minister added that she “has no reason to fear Buhari. Those who cannot adequately explain what they did with the resources of their states and are begging for bailout are those who should to be scared.”

Okonjo-Iweala denied claims by Oshiomhole that she has been speaking out lately because of the “fear of Buhari”.

According to her, “if there is any minister whose voice has been strong on the right issues over the past four years, it is me Okonjo-Iweala.”
