The Director General of World Trade Organisation, WTO, Dr Ngozi Okonjo – Iweala, has raised alarm about alleged threat to life over her visit to President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday in Abuja.
She expressed this worry in her statement after the visit. Here is the full statement;
“I keep receiving toxic calls and messages regarding my meeting with the President Tinubu yesterday(Tuesday), and from those I hold in very high esteem.
“Honestly, I am shocked at the contents of the messages and the tone of the callers. Has Nigeria sunk this low? A visit I made for the good of our dear nation is what they are using to threaten my life and family! You don’t recognize someone as your President yet begging him to save you from the hands of killers in your region.
I am bringing investors to Nigeria using the President’s commendable policies as bait. Is that too difficult to understand?
According to her, “President Tinubu’s reforms might be harsh now but they would birth a new and prosperous nation. I have lost count of presidents, respected Institutions, and investors that have called to congratulate me on Nigeria eventually having a focused leader since the reforms were rolled out”.
She explained that at least, six multi-national manufacturing giants are coming with me by December later this year to see how their firms can have factories here. It’s all part of my contributions to the progress of Nigeria.
“I am not a politician. I only desire the best for my dear country. It informed my visit to President Tinubu. The world has accepted him as our President, like it or not. May God heal us”, Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala concluded.
