When I said Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala 2019, I meant her running for 2019, running for what, For Presidency of course. It high time to have female leader who will be able to manage the economic in a reasonable manner.
Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is a Nigerian and a highly respected and influential global leader, economist, policy maker and thinker on Finance and Economic Development. She has been listed 5 years consecutively as one of the 100 Most Powerful Women in the World by Forbes Magazine and in 2013 was listed as one of the Most Influential People in the World by TIME Magazine. In 2015, she was also listed as one of the 50 Greatest World Leaders by Fortune.
She served two terms as Finance Minister of Nigeria (2003-2006, 2011-2015) under President Obasanjo (2003-2006), President Goodluck Jonathan (2011-2015) and was previously Managing Director of the World Bank (2007-2011). She currently chairs the Board of the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) and the African Risk Capacity (ARC). She is also a Senior Adviser at Lazard.
Dr. Okonjo-Iweala is renowned as the first female and black candidate to contest for the presidency of the World Bank Group in 2012.
A woman who has spent 21years of her career as a development economist at the World bank, A woman who got her PhD at (MIT), to me she's just the right person for we Nigerian's because what we need now is an economic Messiah, who has the right qualifications and an ideologist who will be able to take this country to more greater heights and this I see in her. This was the reason GEJ brought her to his team and during his term, our Economy was number 1 in Africa,Why because he got the game maker who was specialized in that area.
This is what President Buhari is missing, he does not have the play makers in his team that why we are facing all this hardship.
So I will love to see her run for power, it won't be a bad thing for us to have a female as President and for her being the first no it ain't a bad idea, to think of it let go down history, women over time have changed many nations with just chances of ruling and we can see this in the likes of Queen Elizabeth II who has ruled Britain for 60years now and still counting, Indira Gandhi India's first female prime minister who paved the way for democracy in India until her assassination in 1984, Rosa Parks known as the first lady of civil rights, Margaret Thatcher also known as 'iron Lady' for her uncompromising politics and leadership style Britain first and to date ,only female minister, Angela Merkel of Germany, Hillary Rodham Clinton first lady to be candidate elected in 1999 for the NEW York Senate or Benazir Bhutto the 11th prime minister of Pakistan and the first woman to head a Muslim State, who ended military dictatorship in her country, they so many to mention but these are few and over time women have shown to great leaders when it comes to leadership better than the men.
So it will be really nice to give her the stage to climb, if looked into she's got all qualification not to be denied the chance to take us to the next stage of advancement
