BREAKING! Okonjo-Iweala is now the Director General of the World Trade Organisation

0

Nigeria’s Okonjo-Iweala, 66, has now been officially appointed as the Director General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

An ex-finance minister in Africa’s largest economy, Nigeria, Okonjo-Iweala succeeds Brazilian Roberto Azevedo who surprisingly stepped down from the position in August of 2020.

She has become the first woman and the first African to occupy the office.

“Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala from Nigeria is appointed as the next WTO Director-General. Dr. Okonjo-Iweala makes history as the first woman and the first African to lead the WTO. Her term starts on the 1st of March 2021,” the WTO announced in a tweet.

The 164-member WTO took the decision at a special meeting of the General Council, following a selection process that included eight candidates from around the world.

Okonjo-Iweala’s pathway to the WTO throne was cleared in the first week of February 2021 after her only opponent in the race withdrew; and after the Joe Biden-led United States federal government endorsed her candidacy.

The Donald Trump presidency had blocked her appointment and rained on her parade, hence the delay in her appointment.
