President of the African Development Bank (AfDB) and former Minister of Agriculture, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, has officially joined the 2023 presidential race under the auspices of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
According to reports, a coalition of 28 groups purchased the 100million naira expression of interest and nomination forms for Adesina on Sunday.
The coalition’s leader, Ademola Babatunde, told the press that the form was bought on behalf of the AfDB president, because they believed him to be strongly qualified to lead Nigeria.
The group also pledged to ensure that they would stand by their candidate, Adesina, throughout the process and events leading to the 2023 elections.
“We are 28 groups, precisely, that came together after very serious consultations, and deliberations on the way forward for a better and united Nigeria.
“We unanimously decided that though the money is outrageous, but if we truly want a better future for ourselves and our children, we must put our resources together to obtain the forms for Adesina.
“We are very much aware of the critical time that Nigerians and our country, Nigeria, are going through.
“If we fail to support a candidate of credible and worthy note, like Adesina, we will eventually hand over this country to mediocre, who will finally destroy our commonwealth.
“This is one of the supports we are fundamentally and passionately determined to render for ourselves by putting Adesina forward to Nigerians,” he said.
