Fuel Subsidy: I Didn’t Say “The Poor Don’t Get It” – Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

ngozi-Okonjo-iweala-243x300“There are some phony and maliciously crafted quotes (circulating on social media platforms and Blackberry messenger) attributed to me. The one created today says that I said that the poor don’t get it. It is entirely false and made up by people are committed to selling lies. The people on this hideous campaign are the ones who don’t get it. No amount of falsehood will ever triumph over truth. I neither hold such opinions nor use such phrases. Please disregard tweets and messages that purport to broadcast my quotes. I only speak to reputable news organisations and not individuals. Thank you very much for your time.”
