The Candidates, enthusiastically have responded to their nomination progress;
Happy to be in the final round of the @wto DG campaign. Thanks, WTO members for your continued support of my candidacy. I could not have made it without the prayers and support of all Nigerians and friends around the world. Thank you @MBuhari and all my friends. Aluta continua!

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala


Deeply grateful and honored to be selected for the final round in the selection process of the next @WTO Director General!

We need a capable & experienced new leader who can rebuild trust and restore relevance of the @WTO. I look forward to your continued support! Thank you!!!

Olatunji1929:
for what pls?na ur papa nominated her?if buhari didn't nominate her can she nominate herself

Because Buhari didn't have a choice.

Look at the Aboki he appointed to ICC. The idiot came 20 out of 20 candidates.

If Nigeria had gone with her first nominee, do u think we will be here?

Give Ngozi the credit she deserves joor

Buhari even substituted another person to push Okonjo Iweala.



Mrs Okonjo-Iweala, a former Nigerian finance minister, was nominated for the position by President Muhammadu Buhari after Nigeria withdrew the candidacy of Yunov Agah, Nigeria’s permanent representative to WTO.

Mr Agah’s candidacy, already approved by AU Executive Council, was withdrawn in a request letter dated June 4.

He substituted Agah, who is presently one of the Deputy Directors-General of WTO for NOI.

Our supports goes to Ngozi Okonji Iweala.






Nigerians should support her regardless of your tribe. International communities don't know you as an Igbo, Hausa or Yoruba, You're just a Nigerian once you're outside

China is behind the Asian nominee; too many politics to this position. Okonjo might not win.

Cool.
A nation makes great strides if it selects her best to rep it. NOI has made her mark in her chosen field. She didn't get to this stage by accident.

See how Naija got bashed when it presented one sharia qualified, affidavit totting, gworo munching character to the ICC.

One more step to go, NOI. All the way, ma'am!

here goes our hate filled Igbo brothers again . grin


humble NOI thanked our beloved President for giving her a chance. but the first thing your empty hatred filled brain made you do is to throw abuse on those that your existence means nothing to


that's the one of the reasons why only some smart version of Igbo can excel, the rest are destined to be keyboard warriors .. so many igbo are smart but you are not one of them


God bless my friend like brother uche wherever he is, one of the kind,smart, intelligent Igbo I have seen, he made an impact in my life. I'm sure he would be highly disappointed in you. Igbo get level
