Adesina Elected to Head African Development Bank

It is great news for agriculture to have Dr. Akinwumi (Akin) Adesina elected to be the next President of the African Development Bank (ADB). His passion for agriculture in his past roles at Minister of Agriculture in Nigeria and at AGRA, as well as his PhD in agriculture economics from Purdue make him an expert on the foundation of most African economies.
