Dr. Jennifer Blanke, has resigned from her office as the Vice President for Agriculture, Human and Social Development at the African Development Bank (AFDB).

AFDB disclosed this on Wednesday in a statement, saying Blanke’s resignation would take effect from 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.

“I thank President Akinwumi Adesina for his strong leadership, guidance, and support which have undoubtedly motivated and helped my team and I to play a key role in the transformation of the bank. I feel privileged to have been given an opportunity to contribute to the bank’s agenda for accelerating Africa’s social and economic transformation.”
