Buhari Meets With Embattled AFDB President ,Adesina_Ada Nkong

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently meeting with the President of African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Adesina has been at the centre of allegations of impropriety at the Abidjan-based financial institution which have been a subject of inquiry by the Bank’s Ethics Committee.
The embattled Bank President had responded, point-by-point, to the 16 allegations made anonymously against him to the Ethics Committee.
The Committee cleared the AfDB President but the United States Department of Treasury dismissed the verdict, calling for an independent investigation of the allegations against Adesina.
AfDB, a regional multilateral institution, is owned by African countries but the US is a major investor.
Nigerian and other African leaders have been rallying support for Adesina who is completing his five-year-tenure but is entitled to another term.
