You Have My Support Always – Buhari To Adesina


Details Of Buhari's Meeting With Akinwunmi Adesina Emerge

Akinwumi Adesina, president of the African Development Bank, has backed up President Muhammadu Buhari’s support in his bid to get re-elected.

Recall NaijaNews reported that Adesina was at the Presidential villa to see the president today.

In 2015, when you were to be elected for the first term, I wrote to all African leaders, recommending you for the position,” a statement by Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, quoted Buhari to have said.

I didn’t say because you were a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) minister, and I belonged to the All Progressives Congress (APC), so I would withhold my support.

“I’ll remain consistent with you, because no one has faulted the step I took on behalf of Nigeria.

Adesina thanked Buhari for his support saying he is proud to be a Nigerian.
