PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari promised yesterday to contact world leaders for their support for the victory of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who is contesting the position of Director-General (DG) of the World Trade Organisation, WTO.

Okonjo-Iweala, also former managing director of the World Bank, is one of the two candidates contesting for the top position of the multilateral institution.

Buhari took this stand via his official Twitter account on Monday night.

This comes after the president met Okonjo-Iweala ,who is one of the final two contenders for the WTO top seat, behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Monday.

Taking to twitter, he wrote:

“We will do all that we can to ensure that @NOIweala emerges as the Director-General of the WTO. She deserves this. I will continue to seek support from world leaders on her behalf. Whatever phone calls need to be made, whatever letters need to be sent, I will do it.”
