The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has endorsed Ngozi Okonjo Iweala for the position of Director General of the World Trade Organisation.
This is contained in a document signed by Mahamadou Issoufou, ECOWAS president, and seen by TheCable on Friday.
ECOWAS called on other African countries to back Okonjo-Iweala, who Issoufou referred to as a “fearless reformer”.
President Muhammadu Buhari had on June 4 approved the nomination of Okonjo-Iweala, former coordinating minister for the economy, for the top WTO job.
