The President of the Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB) Dr. (Mrs.) Bola Onigbogi, has expressed optimism that the appointment of Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as Director-General, World Trade Organisation (WTO), where she is expected to deploy her brain and brawn to evolve laudable strategies that would boost and develop international trade in the world, would greatly impact insurance business in Nigeria.
Dr. Onigbogi, who said this at an event in Lagos, noted that Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala’s
accomplishment as two terms Nigeria Finance Minister speaks volume of her ability to daze the world’s powers and perform beyond expectation.
“It is hope that with her emergence as the Director General of the Organisation, she would deploy her brain and brawn to evolve with laudable strategies that will boost and develop international trade in the world which will aid smooth flow of mobile trade between Nigeria and other Countries of the world thereby deepening insurance business in Nigeria and showcasing the structured practice of insurance that exist in our nation,” she stated.
According to her, success does not come easy, but through hard work and determination, stressing that the world that is often regarded as Men’s World, it takes courage for a woman to vie for an exalted position such as Director General of World Trade Organisation (WTO).
