African Development Bank (AfDB) head, Akinwumi Adesina, has been cleared of corruption allegations, a report by AFP has revealed.

The report said an independent panel of experts, headed by former Irish president, Mary Robinson, cleared Adesina of allegations of graft that has dodged him since the beginning of the year.

The panel of three experts, led by Robinson alongside Gambia’s Chief Justice Hassan Jallow and the World Bank’s integrity vice president Leonard McCarthy, cleared Adesina of all charges alleged by whistleblowers which prompted a 15-page report that claimed that under his watch, the bank had been tarred by poor governance, impunity, personal enrichment and favouritism.

The panel was on Monday quoted to have said its findings in respect of all the allegations against the Adesina were properly considered and dismissed.
