SWITZERLAND, AUGUST 27 – Nigerians are expressing their admiration for the African Development Bank President, Dr Akinwumi Adesina after photos of his outing at the just concluded G7 Summit in France appeared on the social media.
Some Nigerians have even called for Adesina to become the next president as his carriage, capacity and charisma are deemed more presidential than most of the current crop of powerful politicians in the country.
In the photos, Adesina is seen rubbing shoulders with some of the most powerful leaders in the world. He has photos with German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and US President Donald Trump in poses indicating respect and admiration between the AfDB president and the leaders.
See some of the photos below:
The president of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, who attended the G7 Summit on invitation, tweeted an appreciation to African leaders he interacted with at the summit, including Dr Adesina.
The photos become even more thought-provoking when Nigerians remember that the president, Muhammadu Buhari was already in Japan, at a time when the Japanese Prime Minister was away in France meeting with world leaders, including Adesina.
