Okonjo-Iweala donates book proceeds to flood victims


ABUJA—The Coordinating Minister of Economy and Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has pledged to donate some part of the proceeds from the public presentation of her book, Reforming the Unreformable: Lessons from Nigeria, to flood victims across the country.

The minister’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and communication, Mr. Paul Nwabuikwu in a statement quoted Dr. Ojkonjo-Iweala as saying that she was making the donation because “their plight reminds us that the work of improving the lives of our people is a never ending one”. The amount was, however, not stated.

Dr Okonjo-Iweala said time was ripe for the de-politicisation of oil price benchmarking, while calling for the establishment of a body of experts to determine the appropriate oil price benchmark in the formulation of national budgets, observing that the strategy has worked successfully for Chile which earns huge revenues from copper.

Those present at the book launch include: Vice President Namadi Sambo; Chief Emeka Anyaoku; Governor Peter Obi, Anambra State; Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa; Chief Sunny Odogwu; Publisher, Vanguard Newspapers, Mr. Sam Amuka; Vanguard Editor-in-Chief, Mr. Gbenga Adefaye; Ministers of Labour, Chief Emeka Wogu; Works, Mike Onolememen; Commerce, Dr. Segun Aganga; Minister of State FCT, Olajumoke Akinjide and Alh. Aliko Dangote.
