20/03/2017 - Good morning to you all. Welcome to the Africa CEO Forum 2017. The African Development Bank is proud to be a strategic partner of the Africa CEO Forum. President Adesina was looking forward very much to being here with you today. But, unfortunately, due to a personal family loss, he is unable to join you, but asked me to assure you that he is with you, because, and I quote him, “Africa is always on my mind”.

05/12/2016 - Good morning! I wish to warmly welcome you all to this African Economic Conference, being held in Abuja. Unlocking the potential of agro-industrial development across all of Africa is what this conference is about. The choice of Nigeria to host this is significant: it is the most populous African country, with enormous potential in agriculture. If well managed, Nigeria has the potential to become a global powerhouse through agro-industrialization
