Without doubt the idea of unifying the African continent politically, economically and socially by bringing it together culturally and economically, is one of the most important dreams that had occupied the imagination of Africans for decades.
It was given serious thought by the founding fathers of the African liberation movement, such as Nkrumah, Sekou Toure, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Kenneth Kaunda, Patrice Lumumba, and of recent, the Libyan leader, Muammar Gaddafi.
Let us work together for a United Africa, capable of creating its own destiny. As Africans we should talk with one resounding voice. The establishment of a federal government will shift Africans from the union position, to a group of states whose interests coincide and melt into one giant entity.
The Africa of today is not the
It is a solid and strong continent whose people are the mainstay of its power and wealth. Therefore, to a large extent the issue of integrating the continent must be taken seriously as an old adage says unity is strength.
We urge that as Africans we should stop killing each other and bring to an end all the so-called wars on the continent for the sake of African integration.
