The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) heartily congratulates Dr. Akinwumi Adesina on his re-election as African Development Bank president
TUC in a statement issued by its national president, Comrade Quadri Olaleye and general secretary, Comrade Musa-Lawal Ozigi, said the Congress is particularly overjoyed with the report of the investigation panel that states that “Adesina was cleared of all controversial corruption charges after facing questions from a panel on the affairs of AfDB, hence, he was returned unopposed.
“As an organisation concerned and interested in good governance, there are many lessons people in authority especially in Nigeria must learn from the good qualities of Dr. Adesina.
“Here is a man that understands his duty and is committed to doing it. As an ex-minister he left a mark in the sector he supervised. As a man of excellence whatever he touches he transforms; he does it with acute sense of duty and commitment. His rare qualities are lacking in most people in government in Nigeria, nay Africa today.
“The Congress will also like to advise Dr. Adesina to be cautious of the fake whistleblowers around. Of course, it will be unwise to think that people who occupy such positions should not have ” enemies”.
“It is obvious the smoke came from within; that is not to say he should start making enemies instead of doing his duties.
“Once again we congratulate him and wish him more of God’s grace.” The statement said.
