Newly-elected president of the African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr Akinwunmi Adesina, has promised to work with African and non-African shareholders of the bank to build a new continent.
Adesina, who expressed appreciation to all those who supported him to attain his new height, also promised to work with all African governments to bring more inclusive economic growth across the continent.
“The shareholders of the AfDB from African and non-African countries gave strong support, for which I am deeply grateful. Together, we will build a new Africa with inclusive and green growth.
“Together, we can build a stronger and more prosperous Africa, with smart infrastructure, energy for all, a strong private sector, new economic opportunities that will deliver quality jobs and hope for millions of youths and women, revival of Africa’s rural economies to lift many out of poverty, and regional integration for shared prosperity.”
He commended outgoing president of the bank, Donald Kaberuka, for his outstanding contributions to AfDB and promised to consolidate on his achievements. Read more
