Shortly After Her Election, Okonjo-Iweala Made Her First Appointment
Former Nigeria’s Minister of finance under president Goodluck Jonathan mrs Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has been elected the first female director of world trade organization. She also has made history as she happened to be the first African to clinch that position.
Mrs. Okonjo Iweala in a tweet post has thanked the WTO members for electing her to lead the organization. She assured them of fixing all the challenges being faced by the organization.
It is done! Thank you @WTO members for finalizing my election today and making history. In the 73 years of GATT and WTO, honored to be First Woman and First African to lead. But now the real work begins. Ready to tackle the challenges of WTO. Forget Business as usual!
Shortly after her succesful election, mrs. Okonjo-Iweala appointed presidential aid on media mr. Bashir Ahmad as her S.A on Africa Sustainability Plan.
The newly appointed WTO Director General, Ngozi-Iweala has approved the appointment of Bashir Ahmad as her Special Adviser on Africa Sustainability Plan, effective immediately. However, Buhari appointed Bashir elrufai as his new Personal Assistant on New Media.
This is indeed a milestone achievement for her and for Nigeria at large.
