The former Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Vice Presidential candidate Peter Obi and former Senator, Ben Murray-Bruce have reacted to the World Trade Organization selecting Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as one of the two final candidates in the race to lead the World Trade Organization (WTO).
On Wednesday members of the WTO had selected two final candidates for the final round.
These two WTO candidates are: Nigeria’s Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee.
With the two women advancing to the final round of the selection process, the WTO will likely have the first female director-general in its 25-year history.
Reacting to this selection, Ben Bruce and Peter Obi congratulated Okonjo-Iweala who served as Nigeria’s Finance Minister for making it into the finals.
