Following the appointment of Ngozi Okojo-Iweala as the director-general of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), Nigerians started a trend called #BelikeNgozichallenge as they dressed like the woman.

The latest person to join the challenge is a kid of a Nigerian woman with the Twitter handle @jime_vieve. The girl was dressed in an ankara fabric with the signature headgear of the WTO's DG.

To create a striking similarity, the child also wore a forlorn-officious look, carrying a tablet while pretending to be attending to a very serious matter.
