Mr. Akinwunmi Adesina, President of the Africa Development Bank, AFDB, has denied endorsing the Presidential Ambition of Ex-Lagos Governor and National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Adesina, in a statement on Wednesday signed by his senior adviser on communications, Victor Oladokun said the claims were “untrue, mischievous and fraudulent”.
Tinubu on Monday said he was interested in succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 and that he has told the president about his intention.
A photograph being circulated on social media contained a statement endorsing Tinubu and attributed to Adesina. But Oladokun insisted Adesina did not issue the statement.
“For the avoidance of doubt, no such statement or endorsement has been made by the President of AfDB,” Oladokun said.
