Nigeria’s former Minister of Finance, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, has been appointed into a High Level Group on Governance of the Commonwealth Secretariat.
Communications Officer, Commonwealth Secretariat, Ben Maloney, said in a statement that the High Level Group would make recommendations on governance of the Commonwealth Secretariat.
The Commonwealth, however, denied that the group was constituted to secretly begin considering who might succeed the Queen as its head.
The group is chaired by Anote Tong, former President of Kiribati from 2003 to 2016.
Okonjo-Iweala, the Coordinating Minister of the Economy during the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, is among the seven-member group.
