I’m not running for president, says Akinwumi Adesina


Akinwumi Adesina, president of the African Development Bank (AfDB), says he is not running for the office of the president of Nigeria.

There have been calls for Adesina to join the presidential race ahead of the 2023 elections.

Some groups had reportedly purchased and submitted the presidential nomination form of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on behalf of Adesina.

But in a statement issued on Tuesday, the AfDB president said he is not running for president.
