The Pan Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, has welcomed the appointment of the former Nigerian Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, as Director General of the World Trade Organization, WTO.

The regional group, in a statement by the National Advertising Secretary, Ken Robinson, said: “It is a great pleasure for us to extend our sincere congratulations to Dr. Okonjo-Iweala on her appointment as the first and first African Director General of the world organization. .

“PANDEF is enormously proud of Dr. Okonjo-Iweala’s accomplishments and the great honor she has brought to Nigeria, and the Niger Delta region in particular, with this appointment. She has been so balanced and focused and deserves all the accolades she is getting now.

“Her unanimous selection by the 164 WTO member countries is a clear statement of recognition and appreciation for her remarkable contributions to the global finance and development sector during her time at the World Bank, and twice as Nigerian Minister of Finance , as well as its other previous assignments in global space.

“At one point, the country is being intimidated by a myriad of challenges, with distressing day-to-day events, the news of his appointment was like a sweet tonic for the generality of Nigerians, on and off the coast of the nation. .

“It has generated a lot of positive enthusiasm across Nigeria and serves as an assurance that the world community still recognizes that there are world-class human resources in Nigeria, despite the dire events in the country.

“We congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari and all Nigerians, particularly the people of the South-South geopolitical zone, on their historic appointment. We also congratulate the President for his strong support for the aspiration of Dr. Okonjo-Iweala, as well as other African leaders for their solidarity. This appointment has undoubtedly raised the image of Nigeria in the world again, ”added PANDEF.
