The president of African Development Bank, Dr Akinwunmi Adesina says the insecurity challenges plaguing African countries is now an economic problem.
Mr Adesina stated this in a series of tweets on Tuesday.
He said the insecurity problem in Africa is number one factor stopping Africa from developing and 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.
