It is no longer news that there is currently a race for the Head of The World Trade Organization (WTO), and our very own Ngozi Okonjo Iweala is one of the candidates for the huge post. She is one of eight people vying for the position. See names and pictures of the other seven (7) candidates:


Muhammad Maziad Al-Tuwaijri, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia


Liam Fox, United Kingdom


Jesus Seade Kuri, Mexico


Abdel-Hamid Mamdouh, Egypt


Amina C. Mohamed, Kenya


Yoo Myoung-hee, Republic of Korea


Tudor Ulianovschi, Moldova


In a meeting held earlier in the week in Geneva, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala stressed the need for the World Trade Organization to base the selection of the Director-General based on merit, irrespective of gender, race, or country of origin.

She said, ''Choosing a Director-General for WTO should be based on merit. The best person should be chosen to lead an institution that is having challenges.''

''If it should be a woman, great. If it happens to be African, it is also great. It should be based on merit.''

She also said,

''The WTO needs leadership and i am someone with a strong managerial capability with the ability to forge consensus and reforms.''

''These bundles of qualities, in addition to my leadership quality is what I am bringing to the WTO.''


Nigerians are really rooting for this strong woman to get the post. Are you one of them?
