President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Dr Iyabo Masha, the newly appointed Director and Head of the Secretariat of the Intergovernmental Group of Twenty-Four (G24).
Malam Garba Shehu, the President’s spokesman, in a statement, said the President’s congratulatory message is contained in a letter signed by the President.
Buhari noted that by the appointment, Masha had made history, becoming the first African to hold the position since the organisation was founded in 1971.
The President enjoined Masha to use the position to champion the cause of developing countries, particularly on the key economic challenges of economic diversification, tax policy, debt resolution, and financial sector development.
Buhari said, “Congratulations, Nigeria is proud of your achievement, and I wish you a successful tenure.”
