President of the African Development Bank(AfDB), Dr Akinwunmi Adesina has had a reunion with his former driver while he was Nigeria’s Minister of Agriculture four years ago.

Adesina, who was a guest of president Buhari at Aso Rock during the week, took the time to reconnect with his former driver, Alhaji Gidado, who is still working at the presidency.

“One of the highlights of my visit to the State House in Abuja this week was seeing my former driver when I was a Minister, Alh. Gidago. It was such a joy to see him again to thank him for his good work and selfless national service! Thank you Gidado, ” Adesina tweeted on Thursday.

Akinwunmi Adesina was Nigeria’s Minister for Agriculture under president Goodluck Jonathan’s administration from 2010 to 2015. He became the president of the AfDB, in 2015 based on recommendations from the current president, who defeated his former boss. Adesina still has deep ties with Nigeria and its government.
