Ngozi Okonjo Iweala Bashed on Twitter by angry Nigerians
@OccupyNaija tweeted at the two-time Finance Minister in response to claims that House of Representative members walked out on her during an interactive session Thursday. See tweet below
The report that the House of Representative members walked out on Okonjo-Iweala, is a report she claims is false. @OccupyNaija read “I hope you’ll honourably resign from that office you hold than embarrassing your person in the international world.”
Okonjo-Iweala’s response was “Thanks but you should resign from Occupy you nattering nabob of negativism.”
But her response did not go down well with many as she suffered attack after attack on Twitter.
@Akin_Official tweeted that he was disappointed she was a minister. “Really disappointed in u being a minister” and her response to him was “no problem get another one am not only one capable of serving.” Okonjo-Iweala’s responses also raised questions of her temperament. @TempXXL tweeted “Is this anger?” and she promptly responded that it was “no just fairness.”
If Okonjo-Iweala thought her response were in fairness she was in for a surprise as @OccupyNaija who started it tweeted again. “When you get results of your careless utterance on Twitter, I hope 1 day, you’ll get it on the streets where it really matters.”
But there was more from others who felt exasperated by her tweet. @AFOketunji tweeted, “she is just talking anyhow.” while @KrissyPearlie wrote “Wow. #TwitterBrawlAlert All we really want is respectable, transparent & accountable public officers o,” tweeted.
