WTO to appoint Okonjo-Iweala DG next week

Nigeria Former Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to be appointed as the first African and first Woman to lead the World Trade Organization next week.

This was revealed by the organization in its website in a statement titled “WTO General Council to consider appointment of next Director-General’.

According to the Global Trading Body, it said it’d hold a special meeting to consider the appointment of the next Director-General.The meeting would take place in virtual format, they added

This is coming after that US President Joe Biden’s administration on Friday offered its “strong support” to Okonjo-Iweala to lead WTO, clearing a path for her to become the body’s first female and first African leader.

The move marks another sharp split with former president Donald Trump who paralysed the organisation and opposed the candidacy of the former Nigerian finance minister who was backed by many other countries.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala in context is Nigeria’s first woman finance minister trained as a development economist – she has degrees from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard.
