Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari today congratulated African Development Bank’s President, Akinwumi Adesina in person over the success of his reelection.
Buhari said in a tweet on Thursday: “Today I congratulated him in person on winning re-election to a second and final term in office. Nothing succeeds like success. He has been very supportive of our administration, and I wish him all the best in this second term.
“In 2015, @akin_adesina was a Minister with the PDP government, and I belonged to the APC. I fully supported him for the AfDB Presidency that first time, because he’s a good Nigerian. He proved to be competent, made us proud, and I was delighted to recommend him the second time.”
Adesina was re-elected as the President of the African Development Bank (AfDB) for another five-year term. The re-election took place electronically during AfDBs’ 2020 Annual Meeting late August.
