I celebrate Dr Ikemba Iwella, the man behind the successful woman of the moment, Dr Ngozi Okonji Iwealla. He was solidly behind in their 37 years of marriage as she became ;
The first female Managing Director [operations] of World Bank.
The first female finance minister in Nigeria. She served under two presidents, OBJ & GEJ.
The first female and African to be the DG of World Trade Organizations.
All husbands should emulate him and stand by their wives to fully maximize their potentials. Thank you, Dr Ikemba Iwealla
By appointing Dr Ngozi Okonjo Iweala to head the WTO, the world has just got Ngozi (blessing). The world’s finest economic reformer will as usual prove herself worthy of the position effective from 1st March 2021.
The number of distinguished persons who stepped down for her is a testament to her capacity, and ability to deliver efficiently.
Nigeria’s former Finance Minister, Okonjo Iweala has been confirmed to lead the international trade body.
Her term is scheduled to start on March 1.
The term, which is renewable, will expire on August 31, 2025.
