Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former Finance Minister, has faulted reports that she was declared the new Director-General of the World Trade Organisation, WTO.
Okonjo-Iweala said contrary to reports, the race for the WTO DG was still on.
The former minister made the clarification in a statement signed by her Media Adviser, Paul Nwabuikwu, on Friday.
According to the statement: “As announced by WTO, the former Managing Director of the World Bank and South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee are the final two contestants left in the race.
“The winner should be announced in two to three weeks.
“That remains the correct position.
“Dr Okonjo-Iweala is appreciative and energised by the enthusiastic support of Nigerians.
“And she is urging all to keep praying until the final whistle.”
WTO had declared Okonjo-Iweala and South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee as the two candidates who scaled through to the final stage of nominations.
