However, the United States refused to endorse her and the position is still on hold, news coming from Reuters states that to appoint a new head of WTO, clearance from all 164 WTO members is needed, the United States are the only obstacle currently, here are 2 things I think Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala should do to get the approval of the United States:-
1. Get The United States Connections With Nigeria Back
I think the United States government are aware of the happenings in Nigeria and have severally threatened to impose travel ban to some set of politicians and citizens of Nigeria involved in any rigging, this shows the United States don’t have a pure mind towards Nigeria because of some particular acts like rigging of election and the rest, this might be one of the reason the United States approval is on hold.
2. Speak out as a black
Yes, the United States should prove that black lives matter in every part of the world and in every position, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala should tell people or speak for herself as a black and tell the United States government to consider a black person being the head of the WTO organization, this message will move the United States government as racism is avoided and acted upon.
