The President of the African Development  Bank (AfDB), Akinwumi Adesina, has said that he can’t run for the presidency because of his role at  African Development Bank.





A support group had last week purchased and submitted the 100m  Presidential form of the All Progressives Congress for him.





Nigerians have since been waiting for his response.




Reacting  via  a statement sighted by  Vanguard, the top banker appreciated the efforts, kindness, and sacrifices of his supporters, noting that he is ‘’fully engaged committed to the mission that  Nigeria, Africa and all nonshareholders of the African Development  Bank have given him for Africa’s  Development.’’




The statement reads have been extremely  humbled by several calls from Nigerians  at home and abroad that I should  consider running for  the office  of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.’’





‘’I am very touched by all who have gone to a great extent, with such huge sacrifices, of their own volition, to consider me worthy to be proposed for potential consideration.





‘’The coalition groups of youths, women,  farmers, physically challenged and well meaning Nigerians that have done this have expressed their genuine free will, political right, freedom of expression and association forv my consideration, with the interest of Nigeria at heart.





‘’While I am deeply honoured, humbled, and grateful for all the incredible goodwill, kindness, and confidence, my current responsibilities at this time, do not allow me to accept to be considered.





‘’I remain  fully engaged and committed to the mission of Nigeria, Africa and all  the non-shareholders of the African Development Bank have given me  for Africa’s Development.’’




‘’I remain fully focused on the mission of supporting  the accelerated development  asnd economic integration  of Africa.’’
