Enoh Ebong: Biden appoints Nigerian lawyer as USTDA acting boss


 Another Nigerian has bagged a very important appointment in the US

 This time it was Enoh Ebong, a lawyer who was appointed by President Joe Biden to head the USTDA in an acting capacity.

 Ebong had served in other roles in the agency for a period of 15 years.

President Joe Biden has appointed a Nigerian-born lawyer, Enoh Ebong, as the acting director of the United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA).

According to the USTDA, Ebong’s appointment is much like a return to the agency after serving in various roles, some of which were the general counsel, deputy director, and chief operating officer between 2004 and 2019.

In her new position, Ebong is to lead the USTDA which works with the US private sector to develop sustainable infrastructure and foster economic growth in emerging economies while supporting local jobs through exportation.

Ebong has served in various capacities in the agency for not less than 15 years.

During her swearing-in ceremony, she noted that the rare opportunity to serve in this capacity coincides with a crucial time when the international community looks to America “for leadership on clean energy and climate-smart infrastructure, as well as safe and secure ICT solutions.”

Ebong added:

“The Agency is one of the most effective, targeted and proven tools within the U.S. government. I’ve long believed in USTDA’s mission and program, which are fully aligned with the President’s vision of strengthening our economy and addressing climate as an essential component of American foreign policy and national security.”
