The president of African Development Bank has said food security in Africa will soon be history..

    Dr. Akinwunmi Adesina, the President of the African Development Bank (AfDB), has expressed confidence that food insecurity in Africa will become a thing of the past within the next five years. He emphasized that the continent has the necessary investment and capacity to achieve this significant milestone.


    During discussions on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meetings in New York, Dr. Adesina highlighted the remarkable success of special agro-industrial processing zones. He pointed out that in Nigeria alone, there has been a recent request to expand the coverage of these zones from eight states to 35.

    These special zones are strategically chosen rural areas that receive infrastructure investments, enabling food and agribusiness companies to establish and expand their operations.

    Dr. Adesina stated, “From my perspective, we should not be discussing food security in Africa in more than five years. There is no reason for it. We possess the technology and the financial resources to achieve it on a large scale.”
