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.

Reacting to this development, he 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.
