Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala: Tom or Joy PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jonathan Elendu   
Monday, 07 August 2006

Abuja, Nigeria.

 

The search for the new Foreign Affairs Minister has narrowed down to two candidates. According to sources at the Presidency and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the President may have settled on one of two individuals for the replacement of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala who resigned as Nigeria’s Foreign Affairs Minister last week.

 

 

 

 

Elendureports.com was informed by usually reliable sources that Nigeria’s Ambassador to the Republic of Togo, Amb. Tom Aguiyi-Ironsi and the Director General of Nigerian Institute of International Affairs, Joy Ogwo are the two leading candidates.

  

Amb. Tom Aguiyi-Ironsi hails from Umuahia, same as Okonjo-Iweala’s husband. Prof Joy Ogwo is from the Ibo speaking area of Delta State, which is also the former Minister’s native State. Tom Aguiyi-Ironsi is the son of Nigeria’s first military Head of State, Gen. Thomas Aguiyi-Ironsi. Although he met with the President yesterday and presented his resume, Amb. Aguiyi-Ironsi is also scheduled to meet with the President tomorrow.

  

Both candidates are highly regarded by their colleagues and others who are acquainted with them.

  

In a related development, Elendureports.com was reliably informed about a minor cabinet change that will be carried out by the President any moment from now.
