The relationship between the World Bank and Chad continues on its rocky road, as Chad’s President Idriss Deby publically criticises the bank for failing to help his country’s development.

According to the President, the World Bank has treated, and is still treating, the central African nation unfairly, perpetuating its on-going struggle against poverty, and hindering Chad’s ability to develop its economy.

Speaking on a trip to Paris on Thursday, Deby said: “We have a difficult relationship with the World Bank. We are the only African country that has not had access to programmes for extremely poor and indebted nations…It’s an injustice that is imposed on Chad,” reports Reuters.
