She thanked Zainab Ahmed, minister of finance, for the role Nigeria played in clearing its arrears with the WTO and paying ahead.

The WTO DG said: “I want to end with a very big thank you on something that you did, honorable minister, and that is, you cleared Nigeria’s arrears to the World Trade Organisation. I want to thank you, thank Mr. president, the chief of staff for focusing on this.
