A former Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, on Thursday said she had not yet whether director-general of the World Trade Organisation.
She made the clarification in a statement by her media adviser, Paul Nwabuikwu.
It reads: "The race for the WTO director-general is still very much on.
Contrary to inaccurate information released online by an unidentified source, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has not yet been declared winner.
As announced by WTO, the former managing director of the World Bank and South Korea’s Yoo Myung-hee are the final two contestants left in the race.
The winner should be announced in two to three weeks.
That remains the correct position.
Dr Okonjo-Iweala is appreciative and energised by the enthusiastic support of Nigerians.
And she is urging all to keep praying until the final whistle."
