Nigeria’s ex Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, on an Al-Jazeera show on Monday night was asked if she would be open to taking a position in the current Muhammadu Buhari administration.
Replying, she said:
“One of the things you learn as you get wiser is to talk less as you grow older. I have spent my time contributing to the country. It will be better to leave those managing the economy to do what they know how to do. There can be solutions.
“I served my country for seven years and it was a great honor. The second time was very tough but it is still an honor. I am not the only person who is a repository of knowledge. There are other people who can equally try their hands in running the economy,” she said
