WTO: Peter Obi, Ben Bruce congratulate Okonjo Iweala
Peter Obi, a former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Vice Presidential candidate, and former Senator, Ben Murray-Bruce, have reacted to the selection of Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as two final candidates in the race to lead the World Trade Organization (WTO).
WTO members on Wednesday selected two final candidates for the final round.
They are: Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee.
With the two women advancing to the final round of the selection process, the WTO will likely have the first female director-general in its 25-year history.
Reacting, Ben Bruce and Peter Obi congratulated Okonjo-Iweala who served as Nigeria’s Finance Minister for making it into the finals.
Ben Bruce wrote, “I congratulate my sister, @NOIweala on making it into the final two amongst contenders to lead the WTO.”
Peter Obi tweeted, “Dearest Sister @NOIweala, My sincere congratulations on your selection as one of the final two.
“God Almighty who sees your goodness and commitment to a better Africa and the world will grant you success. God bless you always.”
