Director-General of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has applauded the young women who have hopped on the #BeLikeNgoziChallenge and #AnkaraArmy challenge on social media.
The challenge which has trended all week long, sees young women imitating Okonjo-Iweala’s outfit choices by draping themselves in her signature gele (head gear), traditional ankara blouse and beaded neckpieces.
The challenge essentially celebrates the Harvard-trained economist for her selection as the new boss of the multilateral trade body on Monday, February 15, 2021.
While appreciating the women taking part in the challenge, the former Minister of Finance also said she’ll like to know the winner of the challenge.
“Thanks to Temi @temite & all my wonderful sisters who dressed up in Ankara yesterday. Thank you for all your messages of support. I’m delighted & honored to see so many getting the “gele” right. Please let me know who won the challenge. #AnkaraArmy #BeLikeNgoziChallenge #NoiGoesToWTO,” she tweeted.
