Okonjo-Iweala: ‘Lead WTO Like Daniel Did In Babylon’- CAN

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), on Tuesday, congratulated Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, on her appointment as the Director General of World Trade Organization (WTO).

In a statement signed by CAN President, Rev. Dr. Samson Olasupo A. Ayokunle, Okonjo-Iweala was charged to operate like the Biblical Daniel whose wisdom was sought after by many kings.

“Our dear Sister, we urge you to lead the WTO with impeccability like Daniel did (Daniel 6) in Babylon so that the footprint of WTO might be positively felt in all countries of the world as it was never felt before. With your antecedents, professionalism, commitment, focus, determination and dedication to duty, with God on your side, we have no doubt that you will succeed in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.,” he stated.

Dr. Ayokunle, in the statement, said that Okonjo-Iweala’s emergence was a motivation to ladies around the world as well as a pride for her nation.

“Your appointment is a giant stride for all women all over the world, being the first time a woman is so appointed. It is much more a giant stride and rare achievement for African women in particular. “

“Your appointment is a pride to the black race all over the world and a greater pride to Nigeria, your home country which you had served so well before with utmost integrity. Your appointment has demonstrated that with God all things are possible,” he added.

The statement further reads: “The initial snare to your appointment was broken by Him who rules in the affairs of men. Power and promotion belong to God. Yours is a lesson for us all to be our best and that at the fullness of time, no opposition can stand our elevation.

“God has blessed our country with great human resources any country can be proud of and we are happy that some of them are now playing global roles to the glory of God.

“On behalf of CAN, once again, I say a very big Congratulation”
