United States President, Joe Biden gives major appointment to another Nigerian

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

Ebong’s appointment, CRIMECHANNELS gathered, was more like a return to the agency after serving in various roles, according to the USTDA. Some of such roles 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.

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.


Mrs Enoh Ebong earned a Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan Law School, a Master of Arts in Communication from the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, and a Master of Arts in History, with Honors, from The University of Edinburgh, Scotland. She is a member of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Bar.
