President of the African Development Bank(AfDB), Dr. Akinwumi Adesina,  would next week in Akure be a part of the inauguration of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s second term, as he is expected to deliver the inauguration lecture preceding the inauguration of the governor.

 Deputy Governor-elect, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, who would also be sworn in as Deputy Governor, said the AfDB president and former Nigerian Minister of Agriculture,  would deliver a lecture entitled: “Towards A New Nigeria: From Federal Fatherism To A Commonwealth” on the eve of the inauguration.

Aiyedatiwa, who chair’s the 25-man Inauguration Committee, stated that the lecture would hold in the 1,800-seater capacity DOME  with only 400 invited attendees, in line with the COVID 19 protocols.

According to the Deputy Governor-elect, the inauguration ceremony would be low-key though befitting “in order to control crowd and reduce the risks associated with COVID -19.”
