Over fifty years ago the prophetic Kwame Nkrumah called for and wrote a book titled Africa Must Unite. Many self-seeking African leaders described him as a dreamer of impossibility. A few decades after his clarion call, some European countries created the European Union (EU) for their greater unity, collective benefit and for providing global leadership. Since then, American and Asian states have also come together, challenges notwithstanding. Africa is yet to make any meaningful progress towards a union government in spite of public acknowledgement of this need by some of its leaders. The foot-dragging approach in the unification of Africa has given rise to rapid westernisation in the guise of globalisation to ‘squeeze the hell’ out of the continent in virtually all domains of existence. In the midst of these aggressive efforts, Nkrumah’s visionary appeal is more pertinent and imperative today in the face of a weak African socioeconomic and political base. The time to unite is now and there is no excuse for continuous rhetoric.
