Just In: Buhari, Okonjo-Iweala meet in Aso Rock


As the jostle for the lone position of the Director General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) enters its final stage, President Muhammadu Buhari and a top contender for the position and former Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala are currently meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The reason for the meeting has not been made public as at press time but sources at the seat of power said it may not be unconnected with the WTO headship.

In event she wins, the former minister would become the first African to lead the global trade body in its 25-year history.

Dr Okonjo-Iweala was led to the meeting with the President by the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Niyi Adebayo; Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Zubair Dada; and the Minister of State, Industry Trade and Investment, Maryam Katagun.

She is also on Twitter’s board of directors and is a special envoy for the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 fight.
