Daily Metro News NG
The first Nigerian to be elected and re-elected to serve as President of the AfDB, Dr Akinwunmi Adesina has been sworn-in for another five-year term as President of the African Development Bank (AfDB).
The virtual inauguration ceremony was held on Tuesday morning.
It would be recalled that Adesina, former Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, was re-elected unopposed last week after he garnered a hundred percent vote of all regional and non-regional members of the Bank.
The Nation report that Dr Adesina’s first term in office focused on new agenda for the Bank Group, based on five development priorities known as the High fives: Light up and Power Africa; Feed Africa; Industrialize Africa; Integrate Africa; and Improve the Quality of Life for the People of Africa.
