Why Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala should be the next president of the World Bank

 Have you read this?

"I fully expect Nigeria’s Minister of Finance and Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to be the next president of the World Bank. Her rejection as the first African to run the World Bank would be wrong on many levels. There is no one else better primed to execute the obnoxious policies of the World Bank against African and brown nations than Okonjo-Iweala."

Until our clever and honest minds begin to consistently hold the feet our leaders to the fire, we would spend our precious time turning and tumbling in the molasses of incompetence.
I love this piece.

  1. A very well-written article. Chinelo Okparanta's interview on GRANTA also comments on Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala's half-baked post subsidy removal plan. I wish more people would speak up against these government antics that are more for selfish/individual purposes than to better our African nations as a whole!
