Ngozi Iweala

The Director General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has debunked speculations that she said she came “under attack” after she visited President Bola Tinubu.

Kemi Filani News recalls that the DG of WTO met with President Bola Tinubu at the presidential villa, Abuja, on Tuesday.

After her visit, claims were made the round on social media that she came under attack over her visit to the president.

However, reacting via her Twitter handle on Wednesday, Okonjo-Iweala said the claims are “wickedly false designed to create mischief among Nigerians.”

She wrote, “It has just been brought to my attention that a false statement on WhatsApp attributed to me saying that I am being attacked for my visit to President Tinubu. That statement circulating is false, in fact wickedly false, designed to create mischief among Nigerians. Please disregard the statement.”
