The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) is pleased to announce that its shareholders have voted to re-appoint Prof. Benedict Oramah to serve a second five-year term as the Bank’s President.
The decision was taken at the 27th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders which was held this year by circulation of resolutions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In his acceptance statement, released shortly thereafter, President Oramah told shareholders that the Bank’s ultimate goal under his second term is the realisation of Africa’s strategic ambition to create an integrated market.
He confirmed, “We want an Africa where the foundations of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA) are laid expeditiously so that the 84,000 kilometres of borders that have divided us for ages can begin to come down.”
The Bank’s shareholders were united in offering their congratulations to President Oramah and expressing confidence in his continuing leadership in the years to come.
