AfDB must benefit all Africans, not just a lucky few, Adesina says

In a guest column for CNN, Adesina described the AfDB as Africa’s equivalent of the World Bank. He said the AfDB must focus on building an equitable and inclusive model for growth in Africa to eliminate poverty and deliver prosperity for all, rather than for the lucky few.
