President Muhammadu Buhari is meeting with embattled President, African Development Bank (AfDB), Dr. Akinwumi Adesina in the Presidential villa.
Adesina has been under scrutiny after he was accused of impropriety by the Bank Ethics Committee.
Former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan intervened vehemently defended Adesina against the charges.
Although, the Ethics committee cleared the African bank President of the allegations, United States Department of Treasury which is a major investor in the financial institution has called for an independent investigation into the claims.
African leaders including Nigerian leaders have been drumming support for the embattled AfDB President to ensure his 5-year tenure is renewed for another term
