The African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF), the African Union’s specialized agency for Capacity Development, joins the Continent in celebrating the re-election of H.E Akinwumi ADESINA as President of the African Development Bank Group.
ACBF sees the re-election of President Adesina to lead the Bank Group for a second term as a clear sign of the confidence that Africa has in his ability to deliver on the Continent’s development priorities.
“We welcome the news with optimism and see President Adesina’s re-election as an opportunity for development partners and other stakeholders to consolidate the gains and focus on how best the continent can emerge from the depression caused by COVID-19 among other challenges. We wish him and the Bank Group success in the continuation of the journey and we pledge our support by building the critical human and institutional capacity required for the achievement of the Bank Group’s High Fives throughout his term,” says the ACBF Executive Secretary, Prof. Emmanuel NNADOZIE.
The African Development Bank is one of the three multilateral institutions that founded ACBF in 1991 and continues to support the Foundation in the implementation of its capacity development mandate in support of Africa’s sustainable development.
