Akinwumi Adesina is the President of the African Development Bank. He previously served as Nigeria's Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development. Until his appointment as Minister in 2010, he was Vice President of Policy and Partnerships for the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa.

According to akinwumi A.adesina:

A $100 investment: I remember... I had only 25cents left in America. Could not pay 50cents for bus to school. Same day Prof john Connors gave me a $100 cheque. Was like a million dollars. He sent me to prof Phil Abbott who gave me a scholarship, same day! Forever grateful.

These are the kind of people we ought to give mandate to run the affairs of this country. Unfortunately, cabals, mass illiteracy, electioneering frauds and so on will not let them clinge power.

Someday, the narratives will change.

A touching story. If he were in Nigeria, he would have been sent to Mechanic workshop to learn the trade. No scholarship, grant, or talent hunt. Just a society constantly seeking for the weakest to oppress.

Imagine Adeshina as our president, Ramaphosa would have been put in his place with exceptional brilliance. Let's continue to vote for fermented kunu drunkards and expect Nigeria to become Singapore

That's the problem we got in naija.....there are many of his kind in Nigeria,cuts across tribe but let him come out and contest with the illiterate Buhari and his own people and their mini god,tinubu will be the 1st to denigrate him.

Naija problem is enormous. We north must give way entirely for there to be any hope in the land
