‘Information about AfDB Board resolution fake news’

By Chinaka Okoro



 

The Board of Governors of the African Development Bank (AfDB) has denied reports that the bank’s President, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, has resigned.



The board, in a statement by its chairman, Niale Kaba, said no decision has been taken on the complaint by some shareholders about the Ethics Committee report exonerating Adesina of allegations of ethical misconduct.

The Board pleaded to be allowed to do its work without interference.

The statement reads: “On Tuesday, 26 May, the office of the Board of Governors of the African Development Bank Group held a meeting to examine the matter arising from a complaint from the Board of Directors of the Bank, and about that which I received from some shareholders expressing different points of view.

 Adesina: I’m still AfDB’s president

“Following this meeting, several publications in the international press were brought to my attention concerning the content of the deliberations of said meeting. This leads me to make clarifications to avoid any misunderstanding.

“The Office which I chair wishes to reassure the public that it has taken up the matter and is treating it with the greatest rigour and with all the seriousness that it deserves. However, the Office informs the public that no decision has been made as falsely conveyed in some publications.

“I must emphasise that there is no institutional crisis within the African Development Bank Group. Above all, in no case has the President of the Bank Group been asked to resign.

“Everyone must allow the Office to do its work and let the process of examining this case take its course. The opinion of all the governors will be sought for its successful outcome.”
