Gordon Brown Backs Okonjo-Iweala's WTO-DG Bid. Ngozi Reacts by fergie001(m): 8:42am On Jul 28
Gordon Brown has endorsed Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to lead the World Trade Organisation, arguing that she has a record of delivering results in “the toughest of jobs”.

The former Prime Minister claimed that Dr Okonjo-Iweala, from Nigeria, would make an “outstanding success” of running the Swiss-based regulator, which is facing an existential crisis while searching for its next director-general and grappling with the global economic disruption caused by Covid-19.

By backing Dr Okonjo-Iweala and claiming she is respected “across the whole of the world”, Mr Brown, a former Labour leader and chancellor, has passed over Liam Fox, the former Conservative trade secretary, whom Britain has nominated in the contest.

Dr Okonjo-Iweala, a former Nigerian finance minister, now leads the board of Gavi, the global vaccine alliance.

That's a big boost to her campaign. Her major challenge as usual will be from Africans.

Congrats in advance madam. When somebody was saying the Kenyan woman is more qualified I just de laugh. It's not about your experience with the WTO but your experience generally with organizations of such and of course NOI beats every other candidate when it comes to that.

Just look at the support this woman is getting from millions of Nigerian men who twitter feminists accuse of been anti-women, misogynist etc

From the North, to the south, to the east to the west and beyond, everyone is throwing support behind her.

Senile Twitter feminists want to sit behind cheap data, twerk, show nyash, rant on twitter, put rainbow flag on their profiles BUT want privileges to fall on their laps. Ediotas!

Go Okonjo!
