Dr. Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-lweala
Director General
World Trade Organisation

Dear Dr. Mrs. Okonjo-lweala,


Grace and Peace to you from our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

On behalf of the Church of Nigeria, (Anglican Communion), I am delighted to congratulate you on your emergence as the Director-General of the World Trade Organisation.

This is a great feat that testifies to your courage, hard work, resourcefulness and diligence. Your track record of achievements as Foreign Affairs Minister and a two-term Minister of Finance in the Federal Republic of Nigeria speaks volumes of your excellent performance. Your contribution to the development and sustainability of the global economy cannot be overemphasised as evidenced in your role as a Managing Director at World Bank.

You have distinguished yourself as a good Ambassador of Nigeria who has kept the flag of Nigeria flying high with distinction in the lnternational Community. Your eminent role as the Chair of the Board of Gavi, (Global Alliance for Vaccines and lmmunisation), and your various celebrated global recognitions including membership of the Board of Twitter has earned you a dignified image in the lnternational Community.

You are indeed a gift to Nigeria, Africa and the world. As the first African and first female Director General of the World Trade Organisation, the largest international economic organization in the world, you have trailed the blaze in distinguished global leadership.

The Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) joins the rest of the world to congratulate you on this well deserved honour.

You are assured of our continued prayer for wisdom, grace, fear of God and excellent service delivery.


Yours faithfully,

++ The Most Rev’d Henry Ndukuba, MA BD, MA (Ed)
