[2019 Sunhak Peace Prize Laureate] Dr. Akinwumi Adesina, the President of African Development Bank
When you look at the whole issue of peace and security, take the case of another Nigeria. I come from Nigeria, there was a cast lake over there, in the 1960s, it was roughly about 25,000 kilometers square wide. Today, it’s 2,500 kilometers wide. The water is gone, the livelihood is gone and what happens? All of a sudden, terrorists show up in this area that used to be thriving. Boko Haram takes over the whole area.
