Peter Obi, previous Vice Presidential competitor of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Friday announced help for the President of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Akinwumi Adesina.
Obi asked Africa and state governments to lift up and support Adesina to dodge outcomes.
The previous senator made the request in the midst of interest for Adesina’s test for defilement.
The United States Department of Treasury had required a free defilement test of Adesina after he was cleared by the bank’s morals board of trustees.
On Wednesday, the ex-Nigeria’s Agriculture Minister, said he was confident that ultimately, “the bank will emerge stronger than before and continue to support Africa’s development drive.”
Reacting, Obi on Twitter wrote, “For a people in search of leadership that will inspire a continent-wide transformation, Africa and its state governments need to rally round and celebrate opportunities such as been presented by Dr @akin_adesina’s presidency of the AfDB
“We will have ourselves to blame if we miss this opportunity. Adesina deserves all of our support. “
