The death occurred on Thursday 13 July. Babacar Ndiaye, an 82-year-old Senegalese economist and former president of the African Development Bank (AfDB) died of an illness for which he was interned in a clinic in the Senegalese capital.
Babacar Ndiaye is no longer of this world. The former president of the African Development Bank died Thursday (July 13th) in Dakar, Senegal. He was 82 years old. He had been interned for a few days at the hospital Le Dantec, located in the capital of Senegal, Dakar, following a pernicious evil. Known as a seasoned economist, Babcar Ndiaye headed the prestigious African financial institution, the AfDB, for 10 years.
Babacar Ndiaye is known to have brought a new blood to the African economy. Several African economists worship him for the impetus he has brought to economic development in Africa. Several successful young entrepreneurs received a push from Babacar Ndiaye that made them builders of Africa. A role that probably explains his constant presence in the alleys and events of the ADB , even after his mandate.
At the African Development Bank, Babcar Ndiaye is an icon. He was one of the financial institution’s illustrious guests at all events. Last May 22-26, at the 52nd annual meeting of the African Development Bank, in India, Babacar Ndiaye was once again one of the illustrious participants. The house he knew well for having run it for ten years, from 1985 to 1995. A record of longevity that he shares with his Moroccan successor Omar Kabbaj (1995 -2005) and the Rwandan Donald Kaberuka (2005-2015) .
