In a video released via her verified Twitter handle, the British high commissioner Ctriona Laing was seen attired like the Nigerian,.
“Hey, my sister Ngozi, we are so proud of you, the new director-general of the World Trade Organisation. Congratulations!” She said
“And all you young girls out there, see what you can achieve, you can be brilliant in your career but also be yourself,” Laing advised.
