ECOWAS Approves Okonjo Iweala As WTO Boss Despite Rejected By AU

OKEKUNLE SUNDAY, IBADAN

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has endorsed Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala for the position of director-general of the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

On June 4, President Muhammadu Buhari approved the nomination of Okonjo-Iweala, former coordinating minister for the economy, for the top WTO job.

ECOWAS called on other African countries to back Okonjo-Iweala, who Issoufou referred to as a “fearless reformer”.

This is contained in a document signed by Mahamadou Issoufou, ECOWAS president, and seen by TheCable which confirmed to CMM.

CMM will report full details later.
