Keep Pan African spirit alive – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has called on Africans to work hard to shape their future as their forerunners envisioned in their struggle towards the total liberation of the continent.

Mr Mahama, in a Facebook post on Thursday 25 May to commemorate the 54th anniversary of the founding of the African Union, asserted that the journey towards true freedom has been a long one and daunting at some point, but the spirit of Pan Africanism has remained “unquenchable.”

“Let’s keep working at it, let’s tear down the barriers, let’s tear down stereotype, let’s tear down the relics of neocolonialism and let’s work hard to shape our common future as our forebears envisaged,” he noted.

This year’s AU Day celebration is anchored on the theme, “Harnessing the Demographic Dividends through Investments in the Youth.”

Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his part has called for the total integration of Africa “now” as it presents opportunities for prosperity and growth on the continent.

Africa Union Day is the annual commemoration of the 1963 founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), presently recognised as the African Union (AU).
