Congratulations are still in order for the First African and First Woman to lead the World Trade Organisation WTO, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as the Director General, and former President Atiku, former Senate President Bukola Saraki, and Governor Arthur Okowa of Delta State have joined the league of the well-wishers.
Taking to Twitter, Atiku Abubakar described Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as a woman he has known very well as they had worked at close quarters between 2003 and 2007, when she served in the Obasanjo’s administration in various capacities. Asking her to go forward in her new appointment and make the nation proud as she always does, Atiku said it is not a hyperbole when he says no one could be more qualified for the position.Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala: Atiku, Saraki, Okowa, Send Their Congratulations
