Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has been selected as one of the members of a High-Level Group on Governance of the Commonwealth Secretariat headed by former president of Kiribati Anote Tong.
Other members of the group alongside the former Minister of Finance are former British energy secretary, Lord Howell; former UN deputy secretary-general, Louise Frechette and former Australian defence minister, Robert Hill.
Talking about what it stands for, the group said,
At their last Summit in Malta, Commonwealth heads of government directed the secretary-general to form the group.
Today members are discussing the scope of the group’s work and the areas of governance it will examine over the coming months.
The process is open and the high level group reports to the heads.
The issue of succession of the Head of the Commonwealth is not part of the group’s mandate.
The group operates independently of the London-based Commonwealth Secretariat and would report only to the heads of Commonwealth governments.
