Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has congratulated Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, on his re-election as President of the African Development Bank (AfDB). Dr. Adesina whose election was announced by the board of governors of the Bank is billed to resume his new term on September 1.
Dr. Fayemi in a congratulatory message in Ado- Ekiti on Thursday, hailed Dr. Adesina’s re-election, describing it as “well deserved”. Fayemi, who is the Chairman, Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF), said Dr. Adesina’s re-election is an attestation to his dynamic and pragmatic leadership which has helped to reposition the bank.
He said: “This is great news for all lovers of development. It is a befitting reward for Dr. Adesina’s visionary leadership which has increased the growth and influence of the bank these past few years. “There is no doubt Dr. Adesina’s presidency has strategically repositioned the AfDB with an attendant positive impact on the economies of many national and sub-national governments in Africa.
“Knowing Dr. Adesina’s pedigree as a thoroughbred professional and a man of distinction, I have no doubt in my mind that AfDB will make more significant progress, impact more economies and help build a more prosperous African continent, during this second term.”
