Ikpeazu expressed that Okonjo-Iweala’s victory will be a huge win for women and trade.
He made this remark in a tweet on his official Twitter page.
This is coming at a time the United States of America rejected her emergence, arguing that the WTO must be handled by someone who is experienced in trading, hence their preference for South Korea’s Myung-hee.
“The victory of @NOIweala will be a huge win for Women, Trade (a pillar of our Government), Africa & the World.
“As one eminently qualified for the position of Director General of @wto, we expect all 164 members to support her, including the great United States of America.”
