President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday extended congratulations to recently reelected President of the African Development Bank (AfDB), Akin Adesina.

Buhari congratulated him in person:

“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”.

The President’s official Twitter account carried a statement praising Adesina for being ‘a good Nigerian’, lauding him as ‘competent’.

“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”, the president said.
