Okonjo-Iweala

Ahead of the World Trade Organisation announcing its Director General, the former Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is currently meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Recall that Okonjo-Iweala is in the race to become the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation.

She was led to the meeting with the President by the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Niyi Adebayo; Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Zubair Dada; and the Minister of State, Industry Trade and Investment, Maryam Katagun.

Okonjo-Iweala, 66, served as her country’s first female finance and foreign minister, and has a 25-year career behind her as a development economist at the World Bank, eventually becoming its number two.

She is also on Twitter’s board of directors and is a special envoy for the World Health Organization’s Covid-19 fight.

If Okonjo-Iweala wins, she would become the first African to lead the global trade body in its 25-year history.
