Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, says the world has entered in a new epoch with the appointment of Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO).
Wike, in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, said the appointment of Okonjo-Iweala, a one time Minister of Finance and Chairman of President Goodluck Jonathan Economic Team to lead the WTO, is beacon of hope for Nigeria.
The governor stated that he was confident that the former Finance Minister, who has distinguished herself as a renowned economist, and contributed to the economic successes of many nations, will usher in a new era in the WTO.
He stated the new Director General of the WTO throughout her career both at the World Bank and as Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, had consistently demonstrated an exceptional taste for transparency, and passion for equity.
