The President of the African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr Akinwunmi Adesina has been sworn to serve another five-year term.
The ceremony held virtually on Tuesday morning.
Adesina, former Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, was re-elected last week after getting a hundred percent vote of all regional and non-regional members of the Bank, the first of its kind in the history of the bank.
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.
