AUDIO: Playing DUMB Nigeria's Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
Last night SaharaReporters called the Nigerian minister of finance and "coordinating minister for the economy", Dr, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala 7 times inviting her to discuss the removal of oil subsidy on SaharaTV. We also sent several text messages to her mobile number in Nigeria. Of course, she claimed she couldn't hear us. We are hoping to get her on our weekly show on SaharaTV on Saturday if she is ready to discuss her anti-subsidy theories before Nigerians at home and abroad. Until then, we will keep calling!
