Project Unite Africa

“By far the greatest wrong which the departing colonialists inflicted on us, and which we now continue to inflict on ourselves in our present state of disunity, was to leave us divided into economically unviable States which bear no possibility of real development….Africa is one continent, one people, and one nation”  
Kwame Nkrumah
