Incoming UN Secretary-General António Guterres has also appointed a further two women into top UN positions
Announcement from Secretary-General designate reads in part:
“I have an announcement to make that I have been asked to make by the Secretary-General designate, António Guterres, and I will read it out to you in his name.
Again, this is in the name of the Secretary-General-designate: I am pleased to announce that I will be appointing Ms. Amina J. Mohammed of Nigeria as my Deputy Secretary-General, and Ms. Maria Luiza Ribeiro Viotti of Brazil as my Chef de Cabinet.
I also intend to create the position of Special Advisor on Policy, and to appoint Ms. Kyung-wha Kang of the Republic of Korea to this new role.
I am happy to count on the efforts of these three highly competent women, whom I have chosen for their strong backgrounds in global affairs, development, diplomacy, human rights and humanitarian action”.
Another laudable achievement from our very own.
Hearty cheers from the enewsnaija team.
