"Ms. Egbo. I believe the problem here is from which ideological perspectives we come from. The i am a Pan-Africanist who believes in the  "greater together" philosophy of Nkrumah, Lumumba, Nyerere and Haile Selassie. As much as the…"

"I guess it's a matter of perspective. The so called Western perception of the African Identity is not the same as my perception or another African's perception of the African's Identity. It is very important to draw a…"

Congratulations?

So here we stand again, at that same point in our development where our illustrious patriot fathers left us about half a century ago (We might have taken a step or two back, but I will let it slide).  We give ourselves pats on the back for what we perceive as progress. We congratulate ourselves on closing our borders more tightly and increasing our imports of luxury good (under the pretense of higher standards of living). “We are growing more!! “ We say, though most of it rots away on farms and…See More

"Adeola, i believe we have a problem. It seems we are not as well organised as the other chapters (at least from first look). Who is/are our chapter leaders. We need to get some shape and structure into it. Let me know what you all think."

"And you are right. Our predicted models of global development call for an international collaborative effort. No people or state is an island anymore. Thank you very much!"

Ndubuisi Idejiora-Kalu commented on Bernard Nortey Botchway's blog post The African identity- For We Are Many Things
"Great write up! As we do this, we have to remember that we cannot develop alone. Africa has to go into 'balanced cooperation' with Europe and the rest of the world. Your call for the African to 'know himself' is paramount in this…"

The African identity- For We Are Many Things

For hundreds of years the African identity has been subject to what Europe and the rest of the world needed it to be. For a while Africans were barbarians and savages, heathen traders, then slaves. Then depending on which part of the world you found yourself after the slave trade a second class citizen or a colonial.
