Vice President for Agriculture, Human and Social Development at the African Development Bank, Dr Jennifer Blanke, has resigned.
The bank disclosed this on Wednesday in a statement, saying Blanke’s resignation would take effect July 4, 2020.
She was quoted as saying, “I am leaving purely for family reasons to rejoin my family in Switzerland, after a very fulfilling time at the bank. I will miss the bank and the excellent team we have built. I will continue to strongly support the bank from wherever I am.
“She has demonstrated genuine leadership skills and moved the needles on so many fronts, especially in the areas of food security, women’s financial empowerment, and job creations. I wish her all the best and look forward to continued partnerships and engagement with Jennifer,” Adesina said.
Blanke joined the bank in early 2017 and has overseen a number of its programmes, according to the statement.
