The President of African Development Bank (AfDB), Akinwunmi Adesina has been nominated for a second term by President Muhammadu Buhari ahead of the bank’s election scheduled to hold in 2020. This was disclosed at an award ceremony organized by the Hallmark of Labour Foundation yesterday where Adesina clinched the Emeka Anyaoku lifetime achievement award. Elated by the development, Adesina took to the stage to share how the dream began. He noted that the opportunity first began under former President Goodluck Jonathan’s tenure where he was made to serve as Minister of Agriculture. Reeling out a list of his achievements in his first term, Adesina noted that 16 million people had been provided access to electricity. With these achievements, Adesina announced his intentions to contest for a second term in office. He hoped it would complete the work he started at the bank. He also pledged his support to work hard to fast track the development of the African continent with the support of donors.
