But Why Was She Appointed Is A question that has been looming minds of all thus this article.
Okonji Iweala is an Authority in the corridor of Finance is a mentor to many like myself, due to her prowess and Achievement.
Why Okonji Iweala was appointed was not based on Political grounds, its an Appointment well deserved.
Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala (born 13 June 1954) is a Nigerian-born economist and international development expert. She sits on the Boards of Standard Chartered Bank, Twitter, Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI), and the African Risk Capacity (ARC).
Studied at Harvard University, graduating magna cum laude(First Class as In Nigeria) with an AB in Economics in 1976, she earned her Ph.D in regional economics and development from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
However the IMF has Standard and Basis for selection of Which
The person must have distinguished record in economic policymaking at senior levels.
He/she must have an outstanding professional background, will have demonstrated the managerial and diplomatic skills needed to lead a global institution, and will be a national of any of the IMF’s member countries.
He/she must have a proven understanding of the IMF and the policy challenges facing the Fund’s diverse global membership. (S)he will have a firm commitment to, and an appreciation of, multilateral cooperation and will have a demonstrated capacity to be objective and impartial.
He or she must also be an effective communicator.
So Why Okonji Iweala was given an Appointment is because she falls in line with this criteria and more. In the Jonathan led administration where she functioned in the capacity of finance minister she was able to formulate and Implement policies that ensured we didnt run into inflation. With her level of exposure and experience its a position well earned.
I say Congratulations, Keep making Delta state and Nigeria Proud
