Words fail us this day as we celebrate a living Icon the new Director-General of the World Trade Organization Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, as she officially assumes her position robust in our local fabric.

The DG has always been one who wears her roots on her sleeves and has never been ashamed to be tagged African. Since we could talk, Ngozi has always been seen adorning African textiles to all outings, official or otherwise.

She tells us in more ways than one of the prominences of our heritage and how we should own it with pride.

A great motivation to all, especially the young budding Nigerian girl child who dreams of going far and doing great things.

She and no one else can take the place of our Monday crush at Asoebi Guest.

It is a new month and the era of a new reign. Lofty and judicious shall it be.
