Peter Obi, former Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Friday declared support for the President of the African Development Bank (AfDB) Akinwumi Adesina.

Obi urged Africa and state governments to rally round and support Adesina to avoid consequences.

The former governor made the plea amidst demand for Adesina’s probe for corruption.

The United States Department of Treasury had called for an independent corruption probe of Adesina after he was cleared by the bank’s ethics committee.

On Wednesday, the ex-Nigeria’s Agriculture Minister, said he was confident that ultimately, “the bank will emerge stronger than before and continue to support Africa’s development drive.”

Reacting, Obi on Twitter wrote, “For a people in search of leadership that will inspire a continent-wide transformation, Africa and its state governments need to rally round and celebrate opportunities such as been presented by Dr @akin_adesina’s presidency of the AfDB

“We will have ourselves to blame if we miss this opportunity. Adesina deserves all of our support. “
