Osinbajo to attend Adesina’s inauguration as AfDB president

 

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will represent President Muhammadu Buhari at the inauguration of former Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina, as President of the African Development Bank.

Osinbajo is billed to depart Nigeria on Monday for the event scheduled to hold in Abidjan on Tuesday.

The Vice President’s itinerary was contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande.

The statement read in part, “It would be recalled that President Buhari actively supported the candidature of the AfDB President-elect in a keenly contested election conducted in May this year even before the Buhari presidency assumed office.

“The Vice President will speak at the event and return to Abuja later tomorrow (Tuesday).”
