The Director-General of the World Trade Organisation, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, today paid a courtesy call on Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the State House in Abuja.

Okonjo- Iweala used the opportunity to thank the Vice President for his unalloyed support through the long and arduous process that saw her emergence as the first African and first female DG of the global trade and settlement body in the over 26-year record of the organisation.

The 66-year-old former Finance Minister in Nigeria and ex-World Bank diyrector is on her first working visit to Nigeria after she resumed office as WTO chief on March, 1, 2021.

Okonjo-Iweala had also met with President Muhammadu Buhari at Aso Villa on Monday to show her appreciation for the support she received from the All Progressives Congress government from her nomination to her emergence as WTO chief.
