President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with President of African Development Bank, Dr Akinwunmi Adesina, on his re-election for a second term in office.
President Buhari believes Dr Adesina’s versatility, experience at both national and international engagements, will be further deployed to energize the pan-African financial institution.
He wants him him to remain focused and steadfast in pursuing the noble goals of making life better for Africans through various development plans, already captured as High 5s.
He was re-elected by the Board of Governors of the Bank during AfDB’s virtual annual meeting in Abidjan today.
Prior to his re-election, an Independent Review Panel exonerated him of any ethical wrongdoing.
Mr. Adesina will spend another five years managing and supervising the affairs of the bank.
