Africa’s richest man, Aliko, has endorsed former finance minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, as the ideal candidate to lead the World Trade Organization.
Dangote gave his endorsement of Okonjo-Iweala via his Twitter handle in the early hours of Tuesday.
“In these challenging times, the WTO needs the renowned skills and tested experience of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo Iweala to lead the organisation through identified obstacles and strengthen its position as the prime facilitator of international trade.
The Chairman of Dangote group of companies says there’s no one better suited for the task than his compatriot.
“A vote for her by all is a step in the right direction. I fully endorse the candidature of Okonjo-Iweala to lead the WTO”
