President Muhammadu Buhari says that despite the challenges currently facing the re-election if Akinwunmi Adesina as President of the African Development Bank (AfDB), the country is going to stand solidly behind him.
The President made this known after a courtesy visit of Adesina to the President Villa on Tuesday
The President’s spokesman, Mr. Femi Adesina, quoted the President in a statement as saying “In 2015, when you were to be elected for the first term, I wrote to all African leaders, recommending you for the position.
“I didn’t say because you were a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Minister, and I belonged to the All Progressives Congress (APC), so I would withhold my support.
“I’ll remain consistent with you, because no one has faulted the step I took on behalf of Nigeria.’’
The President assured Adesina of the continued support of the nation to his presidential bid, so as to continue the good work he had already accomplished.Photo Credit: Getty
