The event was attended by honoree Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Bono, Ruby Rose, Danai Gurira, Miley Cyrus, Jessie J, Joel Madden, Benji Madden, Hozier and more.

    Okonjo Iweala is looking so fresh and revitalised, guess it was the burden of managing Nigeria’s finance dt was making her age fast. The likes of Oshiomole will have heart attack fighting this woman cos she is Nigeria’s sweet heart.

      People like you will die of envy. In 6 months Buhari has taken Nogetia back to 1983. Let your pain continue while serious minded international community continue to applaud her. Bad belle

    It saddens me when these so-called technocrats use their perceived service of our country as a pedestal to selfishly further their own self adulation and international recognition. Okonjo-Iweala is a classic example of this farce. After 6 years of mismanaging the economy she goes around collecting international awards and high profile jobs. She is always quick to take credit for the economy whenever there are any positives and even quicker to feign ignorance when things go south. In any decent country the woman should be languishing in jail now for all the financial improprieties that took place under her watch as the Minister of Finance and Coordinating minister of the economy under GEJ. Right under her nose the country’s finances were run to the ground, billions went missing, billions in extra- budgetary funds were appropriated to a National Security Adviser and corruption reached mind numbing levels yet she’ll have us believe she was never aware and sells herself as some financial czar of Nigeria. One way or the other these people will pay for what they have done to this country.

      It is unfortunate that you have decided to close your eyes to the truth. This woman is an outstanding woman. If two, three and more people are saying the same thing about a person, then there is some element of truth in it. That is the case with Okonjo-Iweala she keeps bagging awards in spite of her detractors

    Michonne! I see you. How do I live without The Walking Dead? That show should be aired everyday for the rest of our lives in the style of Coronation Street and Eastenders.

    Oshiomhole is indeed reckless and someone should just talk to his senses. He should respect his age. In spite of all his rantings< Okonjo-Iweala keeps being honored.

    Shame to Oshiomhole, Okonjo-Iweala is again recognised and honored. Oshiomhole should go into hiding.
