The president-elect, General Buhari , has asked ECOWAS to support one of President Jonathan’s right-hand men, Dr Akinwunmi Adesina, to emerge the next president of the African Development Bank. Dr Adesina is
the current minister of agriculture and rural development. Buhari has communicated his support for Adesina’s candidacy to the Ghanaian president, John Dramani Mahama, who is the current chairman of the sub-regional group, ECOWAS.
Yesterday, Buhari was quoted as saying that he was endorsing Adesina’s candidacy for the AfDB top job not just because the minister was a Nigerian but because he has a record of excellent performance over time.
He noted that Adesina had years of experience while working in Francophone and Anglophone countries, and a passion to help eradicate poverty in Africa by reducing unemployment and inequality among African youths….. he however told him to delete his previous tweets against him n wipe it off d memories of Nigerians…..
