A draft agreement was presented to senior African officials at the finance ministers` conference on the creation of an African Development Bank.

The conference was convened in Khartoum, Sudan, from 31 July to 4 August by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). Here, the agreement creating the African Development Bank (AfDB) was co-signed by 23 African governments on 4 August 1963. [9] The agreement came into force on September 10, 1964. [10] After the end of the colonial period in Africa, the growing desire for greater unity within the continent led to the creation of two draft charters, one for the creation of the Organization of African Unity (founded in 1963 and then replaced by the African Union) and a regional development bank. The Nigeria Trust Fund (NTF) was established in 1976 by the Nigerian government with an initial capital of $80 million. The NTF must support the development efforts of the poorest members of the AfDB.
