AfDB Votes Adesina In for Second Term as President

The African Development Bank has voted in incumbent Akinwumi Adesina for a second, five-year term as its president. Prior to the election he was the subject of an inquiry on allegations of  "wrongdoing" and was cleared of all charges by an independent body, led by Ireland's former prime minister Mary Robinson. Adesina has been responsible for many reforms at the AfDB and the bank has assisted many countries on the continent with financial aid toward development.
