She’s Third World with a demonstrated history of corruption so of course she should head the World Bank

 

Got your money right here, my friend - step up here and get it!

  Nigerian Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala pushed as candidate for new President of the World Bank. 

39 former managers and economists called on the Bank’s executive board to make their decision on merit.  They include Mustapha Nabli, governor of Tunisia’s central bank, and Jean-Michel Severino, who headed France’s International Development Agency from 2001 to 2010, according to Bloomberg.

Their letter reads: “We believe that Mrs Okonjo-Iweala has outstanding qualifications across the full range of relevant criteria,” and adds that Okonjo-Iweala, who was a managing director at the World Bank until last August, “would hit the ground running and get things done from the start,” the letter said.

When I hear “Nigerian” I automatically think, “corruption” so I Googled the term Okonjo-Iweala corruption and my was I rewarded.

$50,000,000 slid under the table to her brother? Hey, business as usual in Nigeria.

$12,000,000 secret kick back? Yup.

And so on. Remember when Paul Wolfowitz was fired from the World Bank because of trumped up charges that he was having an affair with an aide?  The real reason, of course, was that Wolfowitz had been attempting to weed out corruption in the organization and force it to be accountable. No such worry with Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala . She’s a shoo-in.

    Isn’t Okonjo-Iweala the Maryland Mega Millions winner?

    So that’s what she looks like. I’ve been getting emails from her.

  5. Personally, I think they should clone Christine Lagarde, head of the IMF, to do this job and so many more.
