Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala resumed at the Geneva-based WTO on March 1, 2021, breaking a 26-year record by becoming the first female and first African director-general of the global trade and dispute settlement body.
Addressing newsmen shortly after her arrival via the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on Saturday, the 66-year-old former Finance Minister said she came in to see how to better assist Nigerian entrepreneurs and improve the economy.
She emphasized on the need for Nigeria to explore its share of trade in Africa through the African Continental Free Trade Area agreement.
