Okonjo Iweala resigns

SaharaReports.com reports that the Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mrs. Okonjo Iweala, who was formerly the Finance Minister, has resigned from the Cabinet, citing “deep personal clashes between her and the president”.

If so, that is very bad news for Nigeria.  She earned the confidence of donors and played a crucial role in negotiating the debt relief deal (the world’s largest ever debt relief package).
