Politics ICC Probe: Femi Falana is an Integrity-challenged Charlatan - Okonjo Iweala



Nigeria's former Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has reacted to Nigerian lawyer, Femi Falana's petition of the ICC asking for probe of the ex minister and others for crimes against humanity.

In a statement released on Monday, she called the petition a “desperate joke by an integrity challenged charlatan”.

"Falana’s attempt to implicate Dr Okonjo-Iweala falsely is a disservice to law, justice and the image of the country. It is sad that a person who had earned some prominence as a human rights lawyer now tramples on the human rights of others as a political jobber.

"He and his sponsors are engaged in nothing but media harassment, cyber bullying and intimidation against innocent persons like Dr Okonjo-Iweala for political and pecuniary gain. That is why Nigerians should not give in to Falana’s self-imposed Chronic Cerebral Amnesia (CCA).

@e-sugar, no, she is not guilty. What she succeeded in doing was to leave the message and attack the messenger. And by the way, APC was not mentioned at all in the discussion at hand.
