We Umuada Igbo Nigeria and in Diaspora congratulate our National Patron and International Consultant Dr Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala on her prestige appointment as the new Director -General of World Trade Organization (WTO) from 1st
Dr Ngozi Okonja-Iweala a true daughter of the land, has not just made history as the first woman, African or black person to take up such a prestigious position but has also given hope and faith to the younger generation that hard work pays. You have encouraged our children to work hard and that being a woman or black person should not be seen as an unseen barrier to achieve greater heights but every reason to work hard and do what is right to create a positive difference in the world.
We thank the World Trade Organization for acknowledging Dr Okonjo-Iweala’s exceptional academic achievement and exceptional world class experience as an economist and international development expert, and for unanimously appointing our beloved sister as the DG of WTO.
We pray that our good Lord will give her the grace to move WTO to higher pedestal.
