On Monday, February 15, 2021, Nigerian born Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala took to her official Twitter handle to express her gratitude to World Trade Organisation (WTO) for finalising her election as the first woman to become the Director-General of WTO.
In honour of the noble position, Confiance News has compiled some iconic photos of Mrs. Okonjo-Iweala in her journey to becoming ‘Madam WTO chair’.
It is done! Thank you @WTO members for finalizing my election today and making history. In the 73 years of GATT and WTO, honored to be First Woman and First African to lead. But now the real work begins. Ready to tackle the challenges of WTO. Forget Business as usual! pic.twitter.com/apnAalHWf5
