Serious Controversy Arises Over Okonjo-Iweala’s Latest Int’l Appointments
Nigeria – According to Sahara Reporters, ex finance minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s recent international appointments are a reward for the dirty deeds she did while in office.
The paper says Okonjo-Iweala’s two international posts with Global Alliance for Vaccine and Immunization (GAVI) and Lazard Group LLC raised concerns over abuse of office and conflict of interests.
A day ago, Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala disclosed that she GAVI had appointed her a board member while the Lazard Group, an assets management firm, hired her as a “senior advisor.”
“In her long career as Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala’s actions and policies had financially benefited the two multinational entities that have engaged her,” the report said.
