The World Trade Organization (WTO) Director General, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has warned against unauthorised use of her name and image for political battles.

Okonjo-Iweala while reacting to a Facebook post, which claimed that Okonjo-Iweala criticised the economic decisions of the President Bola Tinubu’s administration amid the reported rise in national debt to N24 trillion within two months, despite the removal of fuel subsidy.

“I call several times to help and advise but the current administration and cabals refuse to let me come in. How can you remove fuel subsidy with a debt of 24 trillion in 2 months,” the post quoted Okonjo-Iweala to have said.

However, in a post via her X account on Monday, Okonjo-Iweala warned against the use of her name and image on social media to fight political battles, adding that people should stop attributing fake messages to her.

The WTO Director-General reiterated her commitment to global economic stewardship and her dedication to combating the misuse of her reputation for political gains within Nigeria.

THIS IS IMPORTANT- It appears that there are people in Nigeria trying to use my name and image on social media to fight battles on different sides of the political divide, putting words in my mouth that I never said.

“Therefore, I want to alert everyone that the message below is FAKE. This is a stern warning to all those trying to misuse my name for their political ends that I will continue to rebut any attempts to use my name and image falsely!” she wrote.
