European Union Backs Okonjo-Iweala For WTO Job – Bloomberg by valentineuwakwe(m): 12:18pm On Oct 06, 2020
EU Throws Its Weight Behind Nigerian, Korean WTO-Head Contenders

Bloc to support two female candidates for next WTO shortlist

Global trade arbiter plans to choose its new leader by Nov. 7


European Union governments will support the Nigerian and South Korean candidates to lead the World Trade Organization as the race enters its final month.

EU member-country envoys agreed on Monday in Brussels to endorse Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s former finance minister, and Yoo Myung-hee, South Korea’s trade chief, in their bids to become WTO director-general, according to an official familiar with the matter.

Hungary swung behind the planned recommendation after being the only EU country to withhold support at a lower-level meeting last Friday of officials representing the 27-nation bloc, the person said on the condition of anonymity because the deliberations were confidential.

Five candidates are still in the running to the lead the WTO. It plans to announce two finalists after Oct. 6 and name a winner by Nov. 7.

Brazilian Roberto Azevedo stepped down from the job at the end of August -- a year before his term ended. The Geneva-based trade body faces headwinds from the coronavirus pandemic, the U.S.-China trade battle, a hobbled arbitration system and a lack of tools to tackle growing challenges such as industrial subsidies.

Her brilliance and achievements remains her selling point...even the EU knows that her market na sure one. Best wishes Ma. If them dey wear high heel shoes based on brain and records yours would have been taller than the tower of Babel. No wonder nobody can even dare wrap ur style of headtie...Madam, we'll send that ICC disqualified quota system lawyer to you as an apprentice soon.

Of course, the whole world knows that when you want to get something done, you must look for an Igbo man/woman to fix it. WTO is currently on death throes and only the midas touch of an Igbo person can resusitate it. Ask OBJ he will tell you. Ask yourself also, you will know that anything good Nigeria has ever achieved came through an Igbo man/woman. The few gains OBJ boasts of came only through the Igbos: the banking consolidation and reforms that made Nigerian banks strong were carried out by CHARLES SOLUDO. The $36 billion Paris club debt cancellation was only possible because an Igbo woman was the minister of finance, and best of all The GSM revolution was also carried out by an Igbo man ERNEST NDUKWE.

For the oldies, you will remember when the Nigerian super eagles were a club to beat in the early 1990s, during the time of Westerhof and you know why it was so then, because out of the 22 players about 15-18 players were Igbos. You remember Kanu Nwankwo, JJ Okocha, Amokachie, Oliseh Sunday, etc.. These were players that come once in a life time.

The insistence of Buhari not to name Igbos in sensitive positions of his govt is the major reason there's mass hunger in Nigeria. The Afonjazees can not acheive a positive macro economic change, neither can the futa jalon illiterates be up to any good, because it is above their pay grade. Only us Ndigbo have the mental and God given ability to achieve big changes.

This is something the world noticed and they are trying to tap into our blessings, that's why you see Igbos recently holding high sensitive positions globally. And now God is about to show mercy on Nigeria, with an Igbo presidency. Personally, I would have loved Ndigbo to call out of Nigeria, so that Hunger and strife will deal with the rest of Nigerians, but the merciful God doesn't want that, and this is the reason he made sure Igbos remained in Nigeria. But God hath said it's enough! And he wants to show Nigeria mercy with an Igbo president, because he knows only the Igbos have the full mark of redemption and they are the only people that can bring positive changes to nigeria.

It doesn't matter what anybody says or does, Ndigbo will rule Nigeria in 2023! And as anyone can see the political realignments have started favoring Igbos - as everyone now wants to famzy with the good people of God!
