This Day (Lagos), 5 June 2007

Various civil society groups in Nigeria have raised the need to look critically at available infrastructure in the African continent before a consensus is reached on the formation of an African Union Government or a United States of Africa.

This was raised at a recent one-day roundtable organised by ActionAid, Nigeria in Abuja. Participants at the roundtable, who were drawn from the civil society organisations, media, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Labour Movement, the academia, ECOWAS, the private sector and other stakeholders, noted that the United States of Africa is a desirable vision.
