An African youth body under the Aegis of African Youths for Integrity has called for the immediate removal, probe and prosecution of The President of the African Development Bank, Akinwunmi Adesina in line with recommendation of the United States of America.
Leader of the youth body Comrade Mutuli has accused Mr Adesina of massive corruption, Nepotism, Political interferences, Sponsoring politicians in African countries to leadership positions amongst others since he took over the leadership of the African Development Bank on 1st September, 2015.
The body has aligned with the United States to call for an independent probe of Mr Adesina for working against developmental activities in Africa, rather engaged in politics and giving of loan to friends, Nigerian banks, allies and countries that he has relationship with its Presidents.
The youth body alleges that Mr Adesina has refused to give loans to struggling African countries but gives to the ones whose Economy is stable, negating the objectives of setting up the bank which is for development of less developed countries.
The youth body has called on Mr Adesina to stop running around looking for African leaders to save him instead of facing the probe. This development has shown that Mr Adesina is guilty of the allegations against him hence he is drumming up sympathy from corrupt African leaders.
The group also condemns Nigeria’s former President Olusegun Obasanjo for calling on past African leaders to support Mr Adesina and shield him from corruption related probe.
The group has called on all anticorruption youth groups in the African continent to prepare for a massive demonstration in front of the African Development bank headquarters in Abidjan, Ivory Coast on Thursday 18th June, 2020.
The youth body is also calling on youths in all the 81 membership countries of the African Development Bank to join in the demonstration in their respective countries.
All demonstrations must comply with social distancing rules and remain peaceful.
We will release further information and website before the date of demonstration and what to inscribe on your placards.
