Ex-Malawian President Banda Advocates For ‘United States of Africa

Dr. Joyce Banda, the former president of Malawi, stated that stopping the exploitation of the continent’s natural riches will result in the unification of Africa under the United States of Africa.

She asserted that African unity will prevent the West’s neocolonial approach towards Nigeria.

The former president gave a speech during the 12th Annual Zik Lecture Series in memory of the late Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe at Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Awka.

Speaking on the theme, ‘Reclaiming Zik’s World: Climate Justice And Africa’s Sustainable Development’, Banda lamented that Africa was not completely free, given the fact that there is a monumental exploitation of the continent’s natural resources by her former colonizers.


“We in Africa are not completely free and these are facts that we cannot wish away, and Africa has continued to be at the receiving end of the climatic change.

“This is occasioned by the looting of African resources which of course led to the climatic change and we African leaders have the responsibility to preserve our future and the future of our children.

“Those of us who are Presidents and governors must tell ourselves that the natural resources at our land belong to the people that we are leading and do not belong to our pockets.

“We must inform ourselves that the wealth of our nation is not ours and as leaders we are custodians of that wealth on behalf of the people that we lead,” she said.

The governor of Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, expressed a similar opinion, stating that a new era is dawning on the continent of Africa. He pointed out that Africa is returning to the Zikist doctrine known as “Reminisce Africa,” which calls for a united, prosperous, and habitable Africa.

“And I think that message shall be in our minds to build and form one nation and with that we face the rest of the world.


“It is important that we must forge one United Africa and Her Excellency when you leave I want you to take this message as former President, that we must come together and form a common peace, and that it is time to go back to that Zikist era with the slogan Africa Unite. Without unity of Africa all that we are doing to make a change cannot be actualized,” he said.

Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Peter Obi, who was at the function, identified bad leadership as Africa’s problem.


“My contribution is that the problems of Africa and Nigeria rest squarely on bad leadership and it is bad leadership that is the burden of Africa and it is not the colonizers.

“I give you example of our problem here in Nigeria. As a professor your salary of N400,000.00 and if they pay you without spending your money for 30 years, your salary will amount to N144 million which is not up to what we use to buy cars for our legislators in Nigeria.

“This University gets about N10 million from the Federal Government as subvention monthly and for one year it would be about N120 million.


“We have 500 professors 4,000 lecturers and 40,000 students and so five of our universities will get about N600 million annually, which converted to dollars is about $500,000.00 and that is what we use to go to meeting of United Nations for one week and that is our problem in Nigeria,” he said.
