The President, Muhammadu Buhari has met with the President of the African Development Bank, Dr Akinwumi Adesina, behind closed-door in the State House.
Making this announcement in a series of tweets, Bashir Ahmad, Personal Assistant on New Media to Buhari, attached pictures from the meeting to his tweet.
“President @MBuhari receives President of African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr. @Akin_Adesina this afternoon, at the State House, Abuja,” Tweet by Bashir Ahmed read.
It will be recalled that whistleblowers had petitioned Adesina, accusing him of 16 breaches of the bank’s code of conduct, some of which include private gains, impediments to efficiency, preferential treatment, and involvement in political activities, which Adesina has continued to deny.
Upon an investigation by the ethics committee of the board of directors, the allegations were found to be frivolous, unsubstantiated and lacking in merit.
