Ruling All Progressives Congress, APC has described the emergence of Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as the first woman and first African Director-General of World Trade Organization, WTO, as a worthy source of inspiration for all girl-children in Africa that anybody can attain any height of his or her dream regardless of the background.

This was contained in a congratulatory message issued Monday and signed by the National Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of APC, Sen. John J. Akpan Udoedehe, to congratulate the former Minister of finance on her confirmation as the DG of the global trade body.

The ruling party said it was proud to note that Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s mandate to head the WTO followed broad support from members of the global trade body.

The APC expressed its confidence that Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, a renowned economist and Nigeria’s former finance minister, will successfully lead the needed reforms to reposition the WTO to effectively deliver on its mandate to promote open and fair trade for the benefit of all.

“The global COVID-19 pandemic has brought its challenges on member-nations economies. It is heartwarming that Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has chosen to prioritise the ramping up of health and economic global efforts to combat COVID-19.

“For marginalised groups, particularly women, the appointment of Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is a pointer that the world is fast-changing and anybody can achieve any positive feat with hard work, diligence and pursuit of excellence. We hope this serves as an inspiration to all,” the APC stated.
