“I receive toxic calls and messages regarding my meeting with the president yesterday”, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala as said.
Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala GCON a Nigerian-American economist, who is serving as the 7th Director-General of the World Trade Organization since March 2021, met with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu yesterday and since then she has been receiving threats.
“I keep receiving toxic calls and messages regarding my meeting with the president yesterday, and from those I hold in very high esteem. Honestly, I am shocked at the contents of the messages and tone of the callers. Has Nigeria sank 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 recognise 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 a bait. Is that too difficult to understand?
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.
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.
