Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala says she is still the Minister of Finance
The Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has denied a report that she tendered a letter of resignation to the president.
This is contained in a statement signed by Paul Nwabuikwu, Special Adviser on Media to the Minister, on Friday in Abuja.
“It has come to our attention that a story is circulating online about the purported resignation of the Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
“For the avoidance of doubt, this story is not true. The Coordinating Minister is still in her position,” it said.
The minister assured Nigerians that the President Goodluck Jonathan administration is committed to the continuation of the current economic policies and the maintenance of macroeconomic stability through tight fiscal and monetary policies.
