- World Bank and United nations
The World bank recently selected Jim Yong Kim, a Physician and Anthropologist (Health Expert) as its new head, an individual without any economic and financial credentials leaving out Nigeria's Finance Minister, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala an individual with impressive economic credentials and has served in the World Bank before.
This decision by the 25-member board was not unanimous with Brazil and South Africa backing Dr. Ngozi.
It was the first time that the United States' hold on the job was challenged. Was this decision merit based as agreed since 2010 or not?
We, aspiring economists, future bankers, future leaders and concerned citizens call on the world bank for the removal of newly selected head, Jim Yong Kim for an individual more qualified and deserving.
