STOP WITCH-HUNT AGAINST AfDB PRESIDENT

Please note: This petition is created by an independent group of volunteers and supporters of Dr. Adesina. Any donations made do not go to Dr. Adesina, his family, the AfDB, nor the petitioners (Africa by Africans, Africa Arise for Adesina, or African Diasporans for Adesina).  Change.org is the SOLE recipient and beneficiary of all donations.

Following investigations that exonerated  and cleared AfDB President, Dr. Akinwunmi Adeshina of any wrong-doing, the US  and it's agents are demanding another probe and issuing veiled threats to pull out of the AfDB.

The Ethics committee maintains that due process was followed to the letter during the investigation. However, since its outcome did not suit the anticipated expectations of the U.S., it now seeks to undermine the credibility of the bank, derail Adesina’s leadership, by making veiled threats to pull  back support for the  bank.

We call on the African Union and the heads of AFDB member Countries to protect the autonomy of the AfDB by challenging the United States government to:

1) stop the witch-hunt and desist from pressuring the AfDB and any of its stakeholders any further,

2) cease interferring with the internal processes of the bank,

3) refrain from undermining the independence, integrity and good work of the AfDB under the leadership of one of Africa's most highly respected professionals,

As Africans within the continent and in the diaspora, we reject the neo-colonialist agenda of the USA and resist further economic servitude to the imperialist propaganda of the World Bank, it's agents and principals.

Africa has come of age. We declare that Africa must be governed by Africans and it's institutions by it's duly appointed citizens.

Please stand up and speak with one strong voice for AfDB's autonomy

Thank you for supporting this cause as Africa arises out of domination, oppression and manipulation. #Africarises
