Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala is a director of the World Bank. She was Nigeriaโ€™s Finance Minister and then briefly Foreign Affairs Minister from 2003 to 2006. The first woman to hold either position. During her tenure as Finance Minister, she worked to combat corruption. She makes Nigeriaโ€™s finances more transparent, and institute reforms to make the nationโ€™s economy more hospitable to foreign investment.

Moreover, the government unlinked its budget from the price of oil. Its main export, to lessen perennial cash flow crises, and got oil companies to publish how much they pay the government. Since 2003 โ€“ when watchdog group Transparency International rated Nigeria โ€œthe most corrupt place on Earthโ€ โ€“ the nation has made headway recovering stolen assets and jailing hundreds of people engaged in international Internet 419 scams.

โ€œNgozi Okonjo-Iweala is a heroine not just of Nigeria, but of the entire continent. Her crusade against corruption has put her life at risk.โ€
