Professor Ngozi Okonji-Iweala, President of the World Trade Organisation, WTO.

Leader of the World Trade Organisation, WTO, Professor Ngozi Okonji-Iweala has visited President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Abuja, the nation’s federal capital.

It will be the second time within a period of two months that the two Nigerians would meet.

Recall that both of them met on the sidelines of the recent economic summit in Paris hosted by France.

Okonji-Iweala who was in Abuja on a personal visit to see President Bola Ahmed Tinubu said that the WTO would collaborate actively with the Nigerian authorities in the development of the economic activities of small and medium entrepreneurs and the creation of jobs.

She said trading has become increasingly digital, assuring the Nigerian President that the WTO which is already running some programmes in the country would work with a host of women to ensure they take advantage of the evolving global digital trend in order to develop their business potentials and the level of their financial earnings.

She promised that her organisation will partner responsibly with the Ahmed Tinubu government to create much needed jobs, reduce unemployment and explore investment opportunities that would potentially turn around the nation’s economic fortunes.

Also speaking  Professor Ali Pate whose appointment as a federal minister has been confirmed by the Senate said the President shared his vision on health in course of their conversation.

Ngozi Okonji-Iweala has worked at one time in the World Bank and served as the nation’s Minister during which she was the coordinating minister responsible for the economy.

As a Nigerian, the WTO President has a vast understanding and deep knowledge of the circumstances that are responsible for the economic woes that are facing  the country.
