Nigeria’s former minister of finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has reacted following an endorsement from the United States for her to lead World Trade Organisation (WTO).
Okonjo-Iweala via her Twitter handle on Friday expressed gratitude to the US.
In the same message, the 66-year-old economist thanked President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigerians for supporting her bid to become director-general of WTO.
She said: “Grateful for the expression of support from the US today for DG @WTO. Congratulations to Madam Yoo of Rep. Korea for a hard-fought campaign.
“Thank you, President Muhammadu Buhari @MBuhari and all Nigerians for your unflinching support. Thank you, friends. Love to my family. Glory to God.”
