Akinwumi Adesina Exonerated By AfDB Independent Review Committee by Tospringe: 7:04am On Jul 28
An independent panel of experts, headed by former Irish president Mary Robinson, has cleared the beleaguered leader of the African Bank of Development (AfDB) of corruption, according to a report obtained by AFP.
Akinwumi Adesina, 60, a charismatic speaker known for his elegant suits and bow ties, became the first Nigerian to helm the AfDB in 2015.

A 15-page report earlier this year claimed that under his watch, the bank had been tarred by poor governance, impunity, personal enrichment and favouritism.
The panel of three experts, led by Robinson alongside Gambia's Chief Justice Hassan Jallow and the World Bank's integrity vice president Leonard McCarthy, cleared Adesina of all charges alleged by whistleblowers.

"The panel concurs with the committee in its findings in respect of all the allegations against the President and finds that they were properly considered and dismissed by the Committee," Monday's report concluded.

The rollercoaster of allegations has battered the African banking institution and Adesina -- who is the sole candidate for the bank's August's presidential elections -- after the whistleblowers' complaints were leaked to the media in April.
The former Nigerian finance minister had always stated he was "innocent" of the charges.

Robinson -- who led Ireland from 1990 to 1997 before serving as the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights until 2002 -- dismissed the 16 whistleblower allegations against Adesina.

The panel did not investigate the charges themselves, as that was not within their mandate.

The AfDB plays an important if largely behind-the-scenes role in African economies, financing projects in agriculture, health, energy, education, transport and other development sectors.

This is fantastic news! Shame on the Americans and their conniving 'Uncle Toms' within the bank that were trying to derail Adesina's sterling efforts and performance at the organization.

This guy should be Nigeria's President someday. Having Buhari Tinubu, Atiku Osinbajo and their ilks leading us as a nation is like a punishment from God Almighty. undecided

This matter never end since? Anyway, good luck to him.
The OP should correct the post. Adesina was not former finance minister but agriculture.

A win for Nigeria, at least there's one Nigerian with integrity.

I don't trust Uncle Sam

I don't trust the Chinaman too

But I'd rather trust Uncle Sam than those ravenous Chinamen.

Modified:

Nairalanders can read, a few more can write , others practice zeal without wisdom, but most have a problem with comprehension, the basic act of understanding the meaning within a context and that's why sarcasm,satires, puns etc sound tasteless to them.

It's best not to engage with people like this, a logical point of view seems to clash with theirs or eludes them, they are quite rigid too , they tend to verbally attack your emotional, mental state on a debate that has nothing to do with either. Heck they probably think debate means bitter argument. It's just not worth it, these are some of their red flags, there may be others I may have not noticed.

What about the rest of the Nairalanders, well the rest are worth their weight in gold.

I think my most agreeable conclusion would be it's legitimately true that the empty vessels makes the loudest noise.

I really Thank God for this phase in his life.

I believe that he is now stronger, wiser and more courageous. Challenges come to strengthen us and bring the best out of us.

Please when you are faced with challenges, stay strong; at the end you will be a better person.

God bless Akinwumi Adesina

That is how due process is done in saner climes , not like Nigeria that buggle justice. Now that he has been investigated and cleared the onus lies on member countries to support his re election to further position the organization to greater hight.
