Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala & the Big Wolves of the World Bank

Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala

In our continent where most of our governments are know the principle.."the State $$ stays among the government sharks"'s a game where there are no "goody-goody" you either play the game to get richer...or you are simply get eliminated...

Following that principle, when Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala came into power in 2003 as the First Female Foreign Minister..I'm sure most people @ high rank within the government were not pleased w/this woman whose aim was to get rid of corruption which was poisoning her Nigerian country. ...

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is an accomplished woman; she holds a Bachelors Degree from Harvard University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude & a PHD from M.I.T

Not only does she have the academic knowledge, but she also has extensive experience working at the World Bank working as the vice-president and corporate secretary of the World Bank Group. She had her start after she joined the young professional program (see sometimes those programs can work , take the time to apply who knows)

In 2003, her country came calling and she took a leave of absence from the world bank and went on to start a great career as a politician in her Nigeria. She was the first women to ever hold a position as both Foreign Mininster & Finances Minister of Naja Land..

Of course "haters" came calling, as she received a salary greatly higher than her colleagues....(hey she was getting paid as a Foreigner by the United Nations ans she deserved it da...)..okay the # was huge gap 6000$ compared to $240,000 .. but I'm sure the others made up for it in other ways if you know what I mean**

Whatever the case , Ngozi had great concepts to end the great international debt in which Nigeria was in,she also went to great lenght to put a stop to the email /bank scam (you know those we receive by email..where you are to put money in bank accounts ...ect)
Ngozi is also a woman who stands by her convictions , when the Nigerian President reduced her budget, she quit her job until he made things back 2 normal.

Today she's no longer working as Minister but her legacy and the respect she built along her career remains.

One of her children, Uzodinma Iweala is an upcoming writter whose first novel Beasts of No Nation was published in 2005 (more 2 come about him ..laterzzz)

Djaa Naja Women are Fierce:)
Eyee Wayee:)
