Nigerian, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, on Monday, March 1, assumed office as Director-General of the World Trade Organization.
The former Nigerian minister of finance, Mrs Okonjo-Iweala was confirmed DG of the trade body on February 15.
She assumed office amid high expectations among stakeholders of the global trade body.
Mrs Okonjo-Iweala emerged the shoo-in after her final challenger to the position, South Korean Trade Minister and candidate, Yoo Myung-hee, announced her withdrawal.
The DG who was dressed in African wax fabric material with her trademark head tie was received into office by officials of the trade body and a few journalists at WTO’s headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
Welcoming the new DG Monday morning, the trade body wrote on its official Twitter handle:
“Welcome to Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala @NOIweala on her first day as WTO Director-General!”
“She makes history as the first woman and first African to take up this post.”
