Nigerian veteran rapper, Michael Ugochukwu Stephens, alias Ruggedman has described the new Director-General of the World Trade Organization, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, as an exemplary woman.
The hip-hop artist took to his Twitter page on Monday to share a picture of the former Minister of Finance in Nigeria resuming duties at the headquarters of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva, Switzerland.
The ‘Baraje’ crooner cum social activist threw a subtle shade at the Nigerian government when he wrote that the former Vice-President and Corporate Secretary of the World Bank secured the position by her qualifications and not through godfatherism or quota system.
