The United States government has on Friday, endorsed Nigeria’s former minister of finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, for the office of the director-general of the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

In a statement sighted by iBrandTV, the office of the US trade representative, said the Biden-Harris administration is pleased to support the candidacy of Okonjo-Iweala, who is also a US citizen.
