Like the proverbial “cornerstone that the builder rejected”, Nigeria’s Okonjo-Iweala, has been appointed as the member of the South African Economic Advisory Council by the nation’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa.
Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala was invited by the South African President to advise the economic council on the way forward out of the economic recession facing the country two years in a row, due to power cuts affecting multiple sectors of the nation’s economy.
Though the “Iweala touch” did not work in Nigeria, her usual astute understanding of how whole economies work, came to bear and the dazzled South African President had no choice but to appoint our rejected Iweala as the Head of the country’s Economic Advisory Council.
