The president of the African Development Bank (AfDB), Nigerian Akinwumi Adesina and his wife recently launched a foundation in the USA.
Adesina launched the World Hunger Fighters Foundation in Iowa, USA to fight famine in the world.
Among those present at the event was former president, Olusegun Obasanjo. The AfDB president declared his gratitude for OBJ’s presence via his Twitter handle. In the tweet was a video of Obasanjo dancing to Yoruba praise song.
Also at the launch was Ambassador Quinn, the president of World Food Prize, as the event also served as a send-off for him. Adesina described Quinn as an incredible man and dear friend.
