CNBC apologizes to Ezekwesili after erroneously stating that Oteh is the first African woman to be World Bank VP

CNBC Africa today acknowledged their mistake and apologized to the former minister on the error made yesterday where they had insisted that Arunma Oteh was World Bank first African woman VP. Mrs Ezekwesili has since accepted their apology. Excerpt of an apology posted in an article on their website below ...
"Oteh however is not the first African woman to be appointed to powerful positions at the World Bank. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala was one of its managing directors (October 2007–July 2011) and Obiageli Ezekwesili, was vice president Africa Region (May 2007-May 2012)"

They should have just ignored that envy-filled of a woman called Ezekwesili.

You got to give honor to whom it is due..

Madam Oby is good and she always insist on the right things being done,
so I think people should encourage such a person rather than outpour of irrational comments and abuses whenever she or a person like her tries to correct whoever is wrong. Kudos to her jare!!!

She was right. Okonji Iweala was VP before becoming a Managing Director of World Bank and Oby VP of World Bank, African Region and Oteh. VP of World Bank, Treasury.
