OKONJO IWEALA TO RELEASE TOP SECRET IN NEW BOOK “FIGHTING CORRUPTION IS DANGEROUS”

Nigeria’s first female minister of finance and economist, Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala is set to release her new book, ” Fighting Corruption is Dangerous” – The story behind the headlines. The book billed to be released by 12th  April, 2018 reveals her saying  it is risky for me to write this book, but also dangerous not to write it. It is risky because corrupt and vested interests described in the book may attempt to attack me and my family physically and reputationally as they have done before.

But keeping quiet allows these same vested interests to muddy the waters and pretend to be reformers. Vested interests thrive in opaqueness and confusion.

Nigerians deserve transparency on the way governance, budget, and financial management processes work. Until they understand this and demand better nothing much will change.

Okonjo Iweala announced this on her Twitter:

 

 

 

The book provides insight into what it means to deal with corruption from the frontlines, she wrote, and will give young people the hope and courage to fight.
