Former Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, believes she’s the best candidate to head the World Trade Centre as its Director General.
As one of the right candidates seeking the position, Okonjo-Iweala says she has proved herself in times past as someone who can effectively work in this position.
She further enthused that the best candidate should not be judged on their ethnicity, gender, country of origin or other such criteria.
She said, “Choosing a Director-General for WTO should be on merit. The best person should be chosen to lead an institution that’s having challenges.
If it happens to be a woman, great. If it happens to be an African it’s also great. It should be based on merit.”
“The WTO needs leadership and I’m someone with a strong managerial capability with the ability to forge consensus and reforms.
“These bundles of qualities in addition to my leadership quality is what I’m bringing to the WTO.”Photo Credit: Getty
