Former President of federal republic of Nigeria Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, has expressed excitement over the new appointment of Dr Okonjo Iweala in South Africa.
In a short congratulatory message on Sunday, the former leader stated that Mrs Okonjo Iweala he knew will perform excellently well due to her wealth of experience especially when she was working under him as the Minister of Finance.
He noted “I congratulate Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala who served as the co-ordinating minister for the economy/finance minister in my cabinet, on her appointment as a member of South Africa’s Presidential Economic Advisory Council.
“As a two-time minister in Nigeria you left indelible marks as an astute manager of the nation’s economy and resources. I am delighted that you have continued to place your substantial wealth of experience as a development economist at the service of many nations and international organisations to aid global growth and progress.
I have no doubt in my mind that you will excel in the new assignment.” Says Goodluck Jonathan.
