The former Minister of Finance Dr. Ngozi Okoji-Iweala sends a warm appreciative message to President Muhammadu Buhari, the Chief of Staff Professor Ibrahim Agboola Gambari, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama and others after she was nominated by the president on the 9 June 2020, for the post of WTO Director-General to succeed the current Director-General, Mr Roberto Azevêdo, who has announced he will step down on 31 August 2020.

Dr. Okoji-Iweala made the appreciation via her verified Twitter handle, see tweet below;

My sincere thanks and gratitude to HE @MBuhari, to Chief of Staff, to @HouseNGR, to Hon @ndudi04, to @GeoffreyOnyeama Min of Foreign Affairs & his team, to
@NiyiAdebayo_ & Minister of State Trade & their team, to @FinMinNigeria team & all Nigerians for their prayers and support!

We gathered that Dr Okonjo-Iweala had earlier complained that some top citizen of Nigerian were working towards frustrating her nomination to head the World Trade Organization (WTO) but did not mention name.

Also during her speech on riviving the WTO, she stated that “The World Trade Organization has an irreplaceable role to play in transforming countries’ economic prospects and the lives of people around the world.

She equally narrated why she is running for the position, through her social media platform;

” I believe in the power of trade to change lives. Today I shared my vision for a reformed the World Trade Organization (WTO) with its members from around the world”
