President of the African Development Bank, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina has said that insecurity is the number one challenge to Africa’s development.
Adesina in a series of Tweet on Tuesday said insecurity is now a political and economic issue.
According to him, terrorism in Africa’s continent is shrinking investment.
”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 and stability in Africa.
”Africa needs new financial instruments to protect and secure investments in countries and regions against rising insecurity,’ he wrote.
