As Nigerians continue to celebrate an illustrious daughter of the country, who is making the people and the Nation proud, some attention is being drawn to another side of the celebrations as emotional pictures of the woman of the moment surface.
Emotional pictures of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala and family
Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is well known in Nigeria from her spells as the country’s Minister of Finance under Olusegun Obasanjo from 2003–2006, and under Goodluck Jonathan from 2011–2015.
Beyond her roles in Nigeria, she is well known for her positions abroad, too, most notably her role as the number 2 official of the World Bank, before she eventually just became the Director-General of the World Trade Organization.
She would be easily recognized as one of the women in the corridors of power and with a mostly business-like attitude. Significantly few people would be let into some more intimate aspects of her life like her family, mostly kept private.

Her husband, Dr Ikemba Iweala, is a neurosurgeon. Quite the family of erudite, you can say.
