Ife’s Ooni, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, said on Friday that the re-election of Dr. Akinwumi Adesina as president of the African Development Bank (AFDB) is due to his good character.
Oba Ogunwusi revealed this in a congratulatory message signed by his Director of Media and Public Affairs, Comrade Moses Olafare and made available to journalists on Friday.
He said that Dr. Akinwunmi’s dedication to work and commitment to quality human relations earned him re-election despite the difficulties he faced before the elections.
“Omoluabi is the name that we descendants of Oduduwa call good character and it is the same way we address people like our only Dr. Akinwumi Adesina with a unique human quality.
“In addition to being an Omoluabi with enviable human qualities, the records of the re-elected president of the AFDB show hard work, love for the country and righteousness. In fact, the entire Oduduwa race is proud to have this gem among us.
“From his humble beginnings as a farmer’s son to his days as minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Adesina has been known as a man of due process and this dissolved the negative charges against him during his re-election bid. .
Instead of the investigative work they were hired for, AFDB’s internal and external auditors ended up evaluating Oduduwa’s bona fide son for his flawless stewardship.
“On behalf of the entire Oduduwa race worldwide, I am pleased to congratulate our good son as I wish him a successful tenure.” Ooni Ogunwusi said.
