The Office of the Executive Director (EDS25) known as Africa Group 3 Constituency, represents Angola, Nigeria and South Africa. The Executive Director is one of the 25 Executive Directors of the World Bank Group (WBG) Boards of Executive Directors. 

The ED's office has a dual responsibility (i) to exercise fiduciary responsibility and act in the best interest of the organization, and (ii) to represent the interests and concerns of the Constituency members countries at the WBG Boards, as well as assist in their efforts to reduce poverty and promote shared prosperity.

This office was established as part of the first phase of the voice and governance reforms of the World Bank, the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) Board of Governors approved a resolution increasing the number of elected Executive Directors and Chairs to 20 and 25 respectively, with a view to allowing that member countries in Sub-Saharan Africa be represented by three elected Executive Directors.

Accordingly, the third chair for Sub-Saharan Africa, at the Board of the World Bank, became effective during the second quarter of the financial year of the World Bank Group, on November 1, 2010, with three countries, Angola, Nigeria and South Africa, as the pioneer members. 

The staff of the Executive Director Office for Angola, Nigeria and South Africa are committed to working with the 189 World Bank member countries to present a consensus on development issues.
