President of the African Development Bank AFDB Akinwunmi Adesina is in the news!
Africa’s largest economy has opposed calls by the US treasury for an independent probe into whistle-blower allegations that Adesina awarded contracts to friends and relatives.
On Tuesday, Nigeria’s leader Muhammadu Buhari met with Adesina, at the presidential villa in Abuja.
After that meeting, the country says it stands solidly behind the reelection of Adesina.
Equatorial Guinea and Sierra Leone too are backing Adesina, who has also won praise from the African Union, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and is now gathering support on social media via #IStandWithAdesina.
