Two-time Nigeria's finance minister, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, was among the foreign dignitaries that attended the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Philadelphia,USA,where former First Lady and Secretary of State of the United States was unanimously nominated as the Presidential candidate of the Democratic party.
She was invited as an International leader to the historic Convention, which saw the first nomination of a female candidate for the number one office in America.She was pictured with her hubby at the event.The highly reputable world class ex-minister rocked different outfits to the event.
Excited with the invitation,she said......
'Great to be invited as an International Leader to this historic 2016 Democratic National Convention (DNC). A watershed for girls and women.
'With Madeleine Albright and Zainab Bangura UN Special Envoy on Sexual Violence'.
'At the Convention - the atmosphere is electric, the crowd galvanized; part spectacle, part theatre, but very serious democracy in action'.
'Picture with Board Members of the National Democratic Institute (NDI)'
This is another twist to the rising profile of Mrs Okonjo-Iweala after her second stint as finance minister during the GEJ administration. Immediately after exiting national politics, she was appointed Board Chair of GAVI, the vaccine alliance owned by billionaires Bill and Melinda Gates.
She is also Senior Advisor at Lazard, one of the oldest investment firms in the world and a Board Member of African Risk Capacity, a specialized agency of the African Union.
