KOGI STATE GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA
KOGI CONGRATULATES AN AMAZON AND GLOBAL ICON, NGOZI OKOJO-IWEALA ON HER EMERGENCE AS THE DIRECTOR GENERAL OF THE WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION
The Government and people of Kogi State congratulate Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala on her emergence as the Director General of the World Trade Organization.
The 25-year old organization is responsible for regulating trade between the nations of the World.
We salute the astuteness of Okonjo-Iweala as a global authority in international economics and financing after she rose through the ranks to become the second in command at the World Bank as Managing Director.
Your emergence has given our hope a renewed leap as you have continued to fly our flag with honor, dignity and global respect among world nations.
It is a trying period for our nation but we have no doubt in your astounding capacity to weave the world trade rules into what will benefit nations, expand the frontiers of hope and rebound our desire to make Africa a major player in World trade.
Kogi State under the present administration is working hard to reposition industrialization, agriculture and solid minerals. We house the biggest deposits of the finest iron ore in the world at Itakpe. It is our belief that Nigeria, through Kogi State will be able to weild diplomatic authority in the Solid Minerals and Agricultural sector of the world economy.
You did us proud at the World Bank and we have an unimpeachable belief that you will replicate your magical display at the world financial institution as you move to take the WTO to the next level of development.
Be assured of the support of the Kogi State Government as we will work closely with you through approved authorities to use our state as a launchpad to Nigeria’s economic renaissance.
Congratulations to the pride of Africa.
