 AU endorses Nigerian minister for world bank president 

African Union finance leaders on Monday unanimously endorsed Nigeria's Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala's candidacy to lead the World Bank and urged an open merit-based process to select the next head of the global financial institution. 

"Dr. Okonjo-Iweala's impeccable credentials, including depth and breadth of knowledge, rich and varied experience, make her eminently qualified and the best candidate for the post of World Bank President," the African Union said in a statement. 

Reuters reported that the endorsement came following a meeting in Addis Ababa, of Finance, Planning and Development ministers from across Africa led by Ethiopian Prime Minister, Meles Zenawi. 

Okonjo-Iweala had earlier in the day warned that emerging economies must be given a fair shot at leading the institutions or they would end up going their own way. 

"The balance of power in the world has shifted and emerging market countries are contributing more and more to global growth – more than 50 per cent – and they need to be given a voice in running things," she told Reuters in an interview, adding, "If you don't, they will lose interest." 

Okonjo-Iweala, 57, was nominated on Friday by Nigeria, South Africa and Angola to lead the poverty-fighting institution when its current president, Robert Zoellick, steps down in June. 

Also nominated for the post are Jim Yong Kim, a Korean-American health expert, whose name was put forward by United States President Barack Obama on Friday, and former Colombian Finance minister, Jose Antonio Ocampo, who was nominated by Brazil. 

It is the first time the post has ever been so hotly contested. 

Under an informal agreement between the US and its allies in Europe, Washington has laid claim to the top post at the World Bank since its founding after World War II, while a European has always led the International Monetary Fund, its sister Bretton Woods institution. 

Okonjo-Iweala said fast-growing emerging economies were becoming too powerful and influential in the world economy to continue denying them the leadership posts at global financial bodies.
Leaders of the so-called BRICS nations, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, will meet at a summit in India next week to discuss the world economy and closer coordination.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & day!

Hello from
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
