Shortlisted candidate for the post of Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has asked for prayers, noting that “the race for the WTO Director-General is still very much on.”

“Contrary to inaccurate information released online by an unidentified source, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has not yet been declared winner,” to her Media Adviser Paul C Nwabuikwu.

“As announced by WTO, the former managing director of the World Bank and South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee are the final two contestants left in the race.

“The winner should be announced in two to three weeks.

“That remains the correct position,” Nwabuikwu said Thursday in a statement.

He added that “Dr Okonjo-Iweala is appreciative and energised by the enthusiastic support of Nigerians.

“And she is urging all to keep praying until the final whistle.”
