Okonjo-Iweala Vows: I won’t serve Nigeria again

A former Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has declared that she is done serving Nigeria.

Okonjo spoke at an event preceding the presentation of the book, “Fighting Corruption is Dangerous: The Story Behind the Headlines” held at the Politics and Prose, Washington DC, US.

It is a book where she illustrates what she had to go through in the fight against corruption in Nigeria

Responding to a question on whether she was willing to return to Nigeria to serve again if called upon, the former Minister said, “I served the country for seven years; I think I’m the longest serving finance minister in the country.

“Other people now have a chance to serve, I am doing what I adore, I am having fun and my work is valued in the international community.

“That is what I was doing before but I went to Nigeria out of love and I want to send the signal to Nigerian young people that if they actually love the country, they can serve without being corrupt.
