He wrote :

To transform Africa, we must prioritise peace and security. Businesses cannot flourish where there is extremism and people are afraid for their lives. It will be even harder to attract the global private capital needed for large infrastructure projects and long-term investments which can help to fix our economy. I emphasised this yesterday, in Dakar, Senegal at the Dakar International Forum on peace and security with  H.E. Macky Sall, President of Senegal; H.E. Mohamed Ould Ghazouani, President of Mauritania and H.E. Édouard Philippe, Prime Minister of France. To tackle insecurity, we must tackle poverty, which is the root cause. We must do this by:
1. Prioritising our young ones by creating economic opportunities for them
2. Driving inclusive growth
3. Involving our women in the development agenda of the continent. While it is no doubt important to discuss weaponry, and other means to deal with insurgency, a lasting peace can only be attained in the long run by investing in our people across Africa
