Okonjo-Iweala Sworn In As Finance Minister

>Nigeria’s new Finance Minister, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has been sworn-in by the President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan. Mrs Iweala’s resumption was delayed as she had to tidy up and properly hand over at the World Bank where she resigned as the Managing Director.

At the swearing in, President Jonathan told the Minister that “the expectation, not just for Nigerians but the whole world is quite high. People expect so much from you. Some feel that you have the magic wand to change everything. I believe with your level of experience and support we will give you and the cooperation of your colleagues, all of you collectively will help to change our country.”
