Nigeria minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has been named one of the 50 greatest leaders in the world by Fortune Magazine..
Iweala who is known for her two terms as Finance Minister of Nigeria and for her work at the World Bank, was recognised alongside the Liberian President, Ellen
Johnson-Sirleaf; Catholic Pontiac, Pope Francis; Chinese President Xi Jinping; Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi; Bill and Melinda Gates as well as Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerburg and Apple Chief Executive Officer, Tom Cook.
While introducing her, the magazine wrote...
"A magna cum laude Harvard grad who holds a Ph.D. from MIT, Okonjo-Iweala has helped usher in a GDP-trebling decade of Nigerian prosperity. “She is a fearless promoter of sound economic policies,” says Witney Schneidman, a former deputy assistant secretary of state for African affairs. No wonder Nigeria’s two-term finance minister—and first woman in the role— has been considered a top contender to run the World Bank one day."
Fortune Magazine’s annual list celebrates men and women who are transforming lives in all spheres, including government, business and philanthropy. In compiling the 2015 list, the leaders were judged by their actions within their professional domain, industries or governance.

SHE IS LISTED BECAUSE SHE DANCES TO THE EVIL TUNE OF THE WEST TO ECONOMICALLY DESTABILIZE HER OWN COUNTRY’S ECONOMY. AS AN ECONOMIST INSTEAD OF REVALUING HER OWN COUNTRY’S CURRENCY SHE HELPS THE WEST IN CONSTANT DEVALUATION OF THE NIGERIAN CURRENCY. IT’S A SHAME TO HER PROFESSION AND IGNORANCE ON HER OWN MOTHERLAND.

This is a well-deserved award. It only confirms what many Nigerians know already -- Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is a woman of integrity and honour. She is a strong and selfless leader. Those who are trying to explain away this award have probably been deceived by believing liars and refusing to acknowledge the facts. Otherwise, they are just haters.
