The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has come out to hail President Muhammadu Buhari for backing Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala in emerging as the first female and African Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

The party’s National Chairman, Mr. Uche Secondus revealed this via a statement issued by his Media Aide, Mr. Ike Abonyi, in Abuja on Wednesday.

According to him, Okonjo-Iweala’s achievement as the first female and African D-G of the WTO is historic for Nigeria and Buhari should be praised for putting aside political sentiment and supporting Okonjo-Iweala and Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, the President of the African Development Bank (AfDB), for the amazing international jobs.

He added that Okonjo-Iweala’s victory coming briefly after the re-election of Adesina as the AfDB President is good news for PDP since it confirms the party as one that brought Nigeria’s best heads into government.

His words, “Okonjo-Iweala’s victory is a reward for hardwork and commitment to excellence as she demonstrated in all positions she held nationally and internationally.

“This savoring news coming at this time that the nation is witnessing her worse is relieving and hope rising that a greater tomorrow awaits this land.”
