Afdb probe: special committee clears Adesina

Akinwunmi Adesina

The special committee set up by governors of the African Development Bank Afdb has cleared Akinwumi Adesina, the bank’s president of any wrong doing.

The committee chaired by former Irish President Mary Robinson sent in findings on Monday, saying; “it has considered the president’s submissions on their face and finds them consistent with his innocence and to be persuasive.”

Robinson continued; “as a preliminary matter, the panel notes that it appears that the confidentiality of the bank’s procedures was compromised by virtue of the fact that both the allegations made by the whistle- blowers in their complaints and the response of the president have found their way into the public domain.”

The ethics committee carefully maintained the confidentiality of their procedures.
