He emphasized the importance of investing in the continent’s young people to secure a prosperous future.

Adesina asserted, “The future of Africa’s youth is not in London, America, Asia, Latin America, it is not in any part of the world.” 

He elaborated on the necessity of focusing on local solutions and resources to drive the continent’s development, stating that the youth of Africa represent the continent’s most valuable asset.

Furthermore, Adesina underlined the importance of financial support to realize the potential of Africa’s young entrepreneurs. He said, “The young people of Africa are the best asset we have, but we have to put our money to back them up.”
