It is nearing impossibility to discuss and debate the true economic, political and social development of Africa as a whole on the basis the entire Africa the continent is divided and fragmented into several smaller states. Upon creation this division gave false hope and enabled some countries to see themselves as superior as or more affluent than others. For example, Burkina-Faso and Mali etc, which was a latent body of international institutions such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF) The World Bank distorting and concealing the facts of their true geological studies and untapped potential?
To dominate and consolidate power, the West places selected not elected leaders of the people. In truth the opposition does not exist; it is only a folklore landscape. The African people have become hostage to the African dinosaurs and corruptors.
The new Africa was born from the balance sheet of the West and European elites and ruling class. The late 1800’s being the official date for turning Africa into a conquered and fully encompassed territory. In 1884 the tragic fate of Africa was formalized and this time with permanent thanks to the complicity of certain sons of Africa and the ignorance of our ancestors. This domination by the West over Africa and more specifically by the French colonization was never to be considered as the cementation of independence by the French but just the annexation of Africa into the Western World and the French Treasury. It is time to consider the territorial limits drawn by colonization as being void. Over time the geographical lines of independence will be redrawn into one single continental country and five sub territories: West Africa, Central Africa, East Africa, North Africa, and Southern Africa. For example, West Africa could have Abidjan as its capital and each country will become a state of this new redrawn geographical entity that serves as a purposeful revenue stream for the western elites.
What could be the political reasons that could lure these countries to abandon their sovereignty to adopt a collective sovereignty?
For French-speaking countries the reason could e the potential abolishment of certain defense agreements between the French army and French-speaking countries. The current defense agreements serve the interests of the French military and new agreements would allow the French to have further access to territories not currently permissible. For example, the Ivory Coast could consent and gift plots of land to the French military which typically and normally would be available to the local inhabitants for cultivation of different varieties of food which would allow the country to have food self-sufficiency with the exportation of the surplus.
We want to take four cases to illustrate how the West manipulates Africans at will. Firstly, the case of Togo in 2005 during the succession of President Faure Gnassingbe. President Olusegun Obassadjo of Nigeria who initially was opposed to the passing of hereditary power of President Eyadema Gnassigbe to his son Faure Gnassingbe. However, after receiving French emissaries from President Jacques Chirac thus promising him heaven and earth in the form of the French support of Nigeria becoming a full member of the UN Security Council, the Nigerian President was on board of the TOGO transition of power. Nigeria turned a blind eye to the election of son Eyadema Gnassingbe to become president of Togo. Nigeria is still seeking membership in the UN Security Council today!!!!!!!!
In 2010, the political crisis in Cote d’Ivoire was reaching fever pitch. At the guidance and request of the French, both Nigeria and South Africa were involved collectively in finding relief for the crisis. The French governments again were playing political chess with a seat at both ends of the table. The French government promising both Nigeria and South Africa support at the UN regarding full membership of the Security Council. “DÉJÀ VU”
In 2011, the macabre plan of the West, which has the French government as its head on the table. Plans by the African nations to support the overthrow of Gaddafi at the request of the “head of the table”. What happened to African sovereignty??? The French and the West exercising military and political muscle for their own benefit and financial gain. Should we not question who the real dictator here is????
When the president of Equatorial Guinea Mr. Theodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, current president of the African Union in 2011, wanted to act as a mediator, accompanied by two African presidents and to travel to Libya to lead peace talks and table a solution to the unrest and pending upheaval, they received a categorical refusal order from Elysee palace. French leader Mr. Sarkozy states they must not travel to Libya and if they did, he would order the French military to shoot down their plane. Where does Mr. Sarkozy receive authority to arbitrarily kill African presidents? Were they in French territory?? We think not.
The Biafra war was a misunderstood and manipulated war. The Nigerian President at the time protested strongly against France at the time of the summit of the United Nations in New York against the nuclear tests in Algeria. In return France funded rebels and terrorists in the Nigerian civil war. In less than two years France under General De Gaulle encouraged and mounted the Nigerian opposition providing arms, logistics and combatants. Under a veil of deceit and corruption the French had created a global position that portrayed the Nigerian people as war mongers and killers when it was the exact opposite.
Of the four cases observed, we have established that African states only have a facade of independence. Albeit the heart of the French speaking African nations people consider the French government and its political bias and pressure to be highly immoral and highly unethical, still this day the French have the support of certain African nations leaders at the UN. The fact that the government of Nigeria considered the behavior of France immoral and criminal when considering their actions towards organizing the war in Biafra they still lend support at the UN. France counted on the French-speaking countries to unite against Nigeria at the UN if required.
There is no French-speaking African country that can dare say no to the French government. They are poorly elected; their people suffer misery and despair every day. Some presidents have compassion for their people but say there is nothing they can do. “The evil which engenders us to side with the French is a mountain too large to climb at the risk of hurting our people”. They have institutionalized clandestine regimes to rule countries from father to son, false support militarily, and monopolization of power. The “selected” French election runners in all African races are predetermined winners. They support jihadists (terrorists) with arms, train them to give them logistics, kill the population. Every day there is mourning in families. These presidents are incapable of defending their populations. When they try to counterattack the terrorist position, the French funded terrorists disappear from public view, only to return afterwards to kill. The only solution available is to have the Africa states become the sovereign countries of West Africa. There will be a Federal Republic of West Africa which has 16 states. Liberia, Guinea, Senegal, Gambia, Mauritania, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Burkina-Faso, Niger, Mali, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, and Sierra Leone. Each federal state will be represented by its capital.
East, Central, Southern and North Africa will do the same. French diplomacy will be in the air at the United Nations, there will be no more defense agreements, no French soldiers in the streets.
The difficulties of the great giant took off.
Allegedly, Africa was known as a continent of misfortune. If Africa wanted to survive there had to be solidarity from the countries of the North. Without the northern countries, Africa is unable to feed itself.
We have seen studies carried out by big international institutions like the International Monetary Fund (IMF) the World Bank (WB) that continually try and undermine and play down the true value of Africa. These so-called experts from the northern countries do nothing but prepare reports that suit the elites and West hypocrites. They manipulate the African people still this day.
There are some who will say the countries of the North are simply practicing business activities. The Inga dam in Congo and the former government of Mobutu, which entrusted the study and construction to a Dutch enginery company. It was a very big project and if realized would allow Africa to acquire electricity at lower costs. The Congo would be able to export energy to the south of Europe, Portugal, Spain, and the south of France etc. This project has been economically sabotaged by western powers because such a project would elevate Africa to an enlightened and controlling space. A loan for the realization was agreed but diverted. President Mobutu was a Western man, used and thrown away like junk. President Mobutu saw this project clearly but did not see the wood for the trees.
Mali, a great country of integrated men, does not know which way to turn when Libya is attacked by the West. They knew that Libya was going to fall and if it did not fall, France under Sarkozy will pay dearly by acceleration of the African central bank and monetary creation. The participants in this vast plot knew that if Mali were not compliant in the plot, they would become an inviolable country. Somalia too is now reliant of aid from the west from which they will never be free.
When Libya is attacked, Mali has already marked its position with 16 secret services from different countries active on the ground. The military took action to overthrow former Malian president Ibrahim Keita (IBK). A week later it would be too late because the French militaries would come as reinforcements to the president.
It is time for Africa to take its destiny into its own hands. Almost all French-speaking presidents are not presidents elected by their people but selected by successive French governments. These selected presidents have nothing in common with their people and their loyalties lie with French governments. They are capable of genocide without repercussions.
