Akinwumi Ayodeji Adesina was sworn in on Tuesday for a second term as president of the African Development Bank (AfDB).

The swearing-in ceremony took place at AfDB headquarters in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, in an event that was broadcast virtually.

Commenting on his victory, Adesina had said: “I am deeply grateful for the collective trust, strong trust and support of our shareholders in electing me for a second term as Chairman. It is another call to selfless service for Africa and the African Development Bank, to which I will dedicate myself with passion.

“The future calls us towards a more developed Africa and a much stronger and more resilient African Development Bank Group. We will build on the solid foundations of success in the last five years, while we will further strengthen the institution, to achieve greater effectiveness and impacts “
