Nigeria’s Kanayo Nwanze was re-appointed on Wednesday to a four-year term as president of the United Nations Rome-based International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the organisation said.

Nwanze said in a speech that he would aim to generate “vibrant rural areas” that could ensure “a dynamic flow of economic benefits between rural and urban areas”, IFAD said in a statement.

The AFP news agency reports that Nwanze was first appointed to the post in 2009.

IFAD is one of the three UN’s food agencies in Rome along with the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP).
