    Statement on the Death of Former Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe

    I wish to express my condolences and sympathies to the Government and people of Japan on the tragic death of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

    We mourn the loss of a great world statesman.

    Shinzo Abe was a gentleman, a caring and visionary leader, who worked for a better and more peaceful world. He will be greatly missed.

    Shinzo Abe had a special love and affection for Africa.

    During the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD-6) in 2016, I had the privilege of meeting with him and several heads of state to help find a way to provide Africa with access to cleaner Japanese sources of energy. The result of that meeting was an invitation to visit him in Tokyo and a subsequent decision by the Japanese government to provide a major clean energy financing mechanism to Africa.

    During the 30th anniversary of the Sasakawa Foundation in 2016 in Tokyo, he seized the occasion and delivered a moving and memorable speech on the importance of food security in Africa.

    We meet again in 2019, at the invitation of President Emmanuel Macron during the G7 leaders' summit in Biarritz. As always, she strongly supported the efforts of the African Development Bank to support African women through the Affirmative Financial Action for Women in Africa (AFAWA) initiative, for which the G7 later helped raise $450 million, with the goal to mobilize $5 billion for women in Africa.

    Under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the African Development Bank was given prominence in Japan's foreign policy. The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the African Development Bank signed the $3 billion Enhanced Private Sector Assistance Agreements for Africa (EPSA-3) and $3.5 billion EPSA-4 for co-financing in Africa, further boosting investments in Africa's infrastructure and private sector. .

    It is to Shinzo Abe's credit that the term “quality infrastructure” was coined and integrated into global infrastructure financing by the G20.

    Under the exemplary leadership of Shinzo Abe, the ties between Africa and Japan became stronger than ever.

    We will be forever indebted to the lasting contributions Shinzo Abe made to our continent.

    I send my deepest condolences to his dear wife, family, and the government and people of Japan at this time of so much pain.

    I share your grief and sorrow over the loss of one of the greatest world leaders of our generation. Shinzo Abe's death is a great loss for Japan and the world.

    May his soul rest in peace.

    Dr. Akinwumi A. Adesina President, African Development Bank Group
