Uche Secondus, chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for backing Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to emerge as the first female and African Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

Secondus rarely gives Buhari plaudits as his party plots ways to unseat Buhari’s All Progressives Congress.

Secondus, gave the commendation in a statement issued by his Media Aide, Mr Ike Abonyi, in Abuja on Wednesday.

The PDP leader welcomed what he described as historic emergence of Okonjo-Iweala, as the first female and African D-G of the WTO.

He commended Buhari for putting aside political sentiment in backing both Okonjo-Iweala and Dr Akinwumi Adesina, the President of the African Development Bank (AfDB), for the exalted international jobs.

He said Okonjo-Iweala’s victory coming shortly after the re- election of Adesina as the AfDB President, gladdened particularly the PDP who he said brought Nigeria’s best heads into government.

The PDP national chairman said that the victory of Okonjo-Iweala in the highly contested global position mirrors the greatness of tomorrow’s Nigeria.

“Okonjo-Iweala’s victory is a reward for hardwork and commitment to excellence as she demonstrated in all positions she held nationally and internationally.

“This savoring news coming at this time that the nation is witnessing her worse is relieving and hope rising that a greater tomorrow awaits this land.”

Secondus also commended the international community particularly the ECOWAS and the African Union, AU, for showing brotherhood when it was highly needed.
