#ALAL WCW- Ngozi Okonjo Iweala.

Ngozi Okonjo- Iweala

Since the term "WCW" now comes across as  a common term among men and women living on Internet Planet, we just had to incorporate it too. Every Wednesday, We'd talk about Women who are achievers in their various fields.

 Our first WCW had to be Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, because why not? Not only has this woman of Substance proven to us that womanhood places no barrier in whatever one wants in life, she has continued to achieve so many feats, and this has earned her a position as one of the most influential women in Africa, and the world at large.
Brief Profile.

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala (born June 13, 1954) was the former Finance Minister and Foreign Minister of Nigeria, notable for being the first woman to hold either of those positions. She served as finance minister from July 2003 until her appointment as foreign minister in June 2006, and as foreign minister until her resignation in August 2006. Okonjo-Iweala was considered as a possible replacement for former World Bank President Paul Wolfowitz. On October 4 2007 she was appointed as Managing Director of the World Bank by World Bank President Robert Zoellick.
