AfDB President, Akin Adesina under Pressure to Join Presidential Race

Akin Adesina under Presssire to Join Presidential Race

The Diaspora Support Group of North America and Europe on Tuesday beckoned on the President of African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr Akinwumi Adesina, to join in the 2023 presidential race.

Chairman of Shine Bridge Global Inc., Chesapeake-Virginia, USA, Dr Tony Bello, gave the charge via a statement made available to Nigerian Tribune.

The group argued that the presidency of Adesina will usher in a robust economic resurgence that will put an end to children drowning in the high seas of Africa and Europe in their quest for a better life.

They called on all well-meaning Nigerians to join in drafting Adesina into the 2023 presidential race with the confidence to emerge as Nigeria’s president in 2023.

According to the group, this is the time for the electorate to take on the civic responsibility of calling on more qualified Nigerians besides the usual career politicians to come and run for office.

The group warned that should Nigerians fail to search for the best candidates now, the hope and faith for a better Nigeria will have to wait for another four years or even longer.

“We, the Diaspora Support Group of North America and Europe, hereby beckon to all well-meaning Nigerians and co-patriots, at home and abroad, to join us in drafting Dr. Akinwumi A. Adesina into the Nigerian 2023 presidential race.

“By the way he has endeared himself to the generality of Nigerians across the board, we would have preferred having him run as an independent candidate if such was possible.

“It is therefore necessary that he contests under any of the two major Nigerian political parties, the APC or the PDP.

“The announcement of his candidacy, no doubt, will be a revelatory message to the world that our democracy has come of age.
