President of the African Development Bank, Akinwumi Adesina has revealed that insecurity has become the major challenge to Africa’s development. 

According to him, if insecurity is curbed, the Africa as a whole can develop as a continent with investments and other opportunities.

 He took to his twitter handle and asked the leaders to ensure security stability in Africa as terrorism is shrinking Africa’s investment space and robbing us of growth.


His tweets read:

“Insecurity is now the number one challenge to Africa’s development. Terrorism is shrinking Africa’s investment space. 

Insecurity is no longer a political issue. Insecurity is an economic issue. We must no longer decouple security and development.

We must ensure security stability in Africa. Africa needs new financial instruments to protect and secure investments in countries and regions against rising insecurity.
