…President Buhari promises unending support to Adesina
President Buhari has told the President of the African Development Bank, AfDB, Mr. Akinwunmi Adesina on Tuesday that he shall support his bid to run for a second term.
President Buhari stated this on Tuesday during a meeting with Adesina at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President said that his decision to support the President of the AfDB is not based on any form of bias.
The president also made it clear that he recommended Mr. Akinwunmi Adesina because he knows that he is capable of the post and he is recommending him again based on his achievements in the years he has spent in the office.
It is due to this that the president wants the AfDB boss to be re-elected and shall do anything to ensure that this happens.
Although some allegations have been raised against the AfDB President in order to render him ineligible for running for a second term, the man has been able to prove himself innocent of all accusations as he says they are without facts and evidence; a requirement by the bank before formal allegations could be laid against anyone.
He has been discharged of any false claims laid against him.
The AfDB President, in response thanked President Buhari for his endless support and sympathized with him over the death of Abba Kyari, his Chief of Staff.
