Finance Minister-designate, Okonjo-Iweala, Assumes Duty August

24 July 2011

FINANCE Minister-designate, Dr (Mrs) Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, who is generally expected to head the economic management (transformation) team of President Jonathan’s new government will not be able to join the federal executive council until the middle of August, and this is official.

In an email conversation last weekend on her assumption of duty in Nigeria, where the Senate has confirmed her as a minister, the World Bank managing director confirmed to The Guardian that she would be in Nigeria by the middle of August when she would have sorted out her disengagement from the World Bank to assume duty in Nigeria.
