Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala lists why she is the best candidate for WTO boss

Former Nigerian minster for finance under former President Olusengu Obasanjo and Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has on Wednesday, July 15, in Geneva, the Capital city of Switzerland itemized the need for the World Trade Organisation (WTO) to elect the best candidate based on merit for the position of Director-General of the World Trade Organization.


The former Director General of the United Nation, who is among the eight contenders jostling for the position, granted an interview by some reporters at a press conference held immediately after she made her presentation to the WTO General Council.


She disclosed that the best candidate should be chosen for the exalted position, irrespective of their gender, race, and country such person comes from. She further stressed that if it happens to be a woman, an African, it's practically great and it all should be based on merit.

 She hammered that the WTO needs leadership and she is that person 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’m bringing to the WTO." She said
