Dr Ngozi Okonjo-iweala, a former Nigerian Minister of Finance, one Economic Advisor to the South African President, and also one time director at the World Bank. She has been nominated for the office of the Director General of the World Trade Organization, WTO by President Mohammadu Buhari.

Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s Candidate for the Office of Director-General, DG, of the World Trade Organisation, WTO, has addressed members of the Organisation, in Geneva, with excellence, Page 36 learnt, on Wednesday.

She and other candidates vaying for the position of the DG of the WTO, will be working so hard as to convince delegates on why they should be given a chance to function as the next DG of the WTO.

Those running for the Office will be addressing the members on a first-come-first-serve basis, with Mexico’s Jesus Seade Kuri going first, and Okonjo-Iweala following up immediately; they were the first two Candidates to throw their hats in the ring.

Dr Ngozi Okonjo-iweala is certainly the best person for the job, because she had severed at almost all stages and in various capacities for various financial and economic organizations.

She was Vice President of the World Bank, and later contested for the office of the president of the world Bank, but sadly she lost.

She was Nigeria's Minister for finance for 8 years under then President Olusegun Obasanjo, and was retained by President Umaru Musa Yar'adua due her intelligence and impeccable character, President Goodluck Jonathan retained her.

She was key to the success of the Jonathan adminstration in the rebuilding of the Nigerian Economy, which took the Economy to the best in Africa and also the fastest growing in the world.

She was later appointed the Economic Advisor to the republic of South Africa by President Cyril Ramaphosa. She has displayed a huge sense of responsibility and accountability.

This was key to her nomination by President Mohammadu Buhari to be Nigeria's candidate for the World Trade Organization director general job.

This appointment has triggered wild support within the African continent, as many countries stepped down their candidates to pave way to a victory for Dr Ngozi Okonjo-iweala.
