Nigerians have yet to get over the record-breaking feat of Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala assuming the Director-General role of the World Trade Organization and have come up with different ways of celebrating the amazon.
Tijani Rahman has also done something in that regard. The young man took to Facebook to share a charcoal painting of Ngozi he made.
Rahman said the beautiful painting which he started on Monday, February 8, took him 11 days to create and was done to honour NOI who he described as the great woman of our time.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young man named Bamaiya had painted Okonjo Iweala on a big wall.
Recall that it was this same young man that painted different types of naira notes months ago where he wore masks on the popular faces on the currencies. He sketched and painted popular Nigerian celebrities like Davido and Laycon.
In his current art, he shared three different snaps that captured the creation process. In one of the snaps, Okonjo-Iweala was just sketched. Another showed him applying paint while the third has Bamaiya posing beside the finished work.
