United States of Africa

United States of Africa This is the Official Page for United States of Africa ABOUT UNITED STATES OF AFRICA: The United States of Africa is a hypothetical concept of a federation of some or all of the 55 sovereign states on the continent of Africa.
(1)

The concept takes its origin from Marcus Garvey's 1924 poem "Hail, United States of Africa. Inspired by Marcus Garvey and other Pan Africanists like Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Malcolm X and Muammar Gaddafi quest for a unified Africa ,a Kenyan Pan Africanist Daniel Mwambonu started United States of Africa project on 7 March 2016 through a page. By the end of 2018 that this initiative gained momentum and received global support. United States of Africa is officially registered in Dallas, Texas in the United States to pursue this vision to unify all people of African descent and foster political union of Sovereign African states in Africa, Caribbean, Melanesia and black nations globally. We affirm our undying resolve to provide solutions to problems affecting Africa and its people throughout the world. United States of Africa is a driving force towards economic, social, cultural, educational, political and industrial revolution in Africa. Understanding that all people of African descent have a common destiny and shared history we are extremely determined to establish the first united African nation. United as a people Africa will become the most powerful nation on earth. The United States of Africa is project is an initiative advocating for reunification of all people of African descent, unification of Africa under one social,Cultural, Political, economical federation. This vision is inspired by Marcus Garvey’s vision of United States of Africa which is a hypothetical concept of a federation of some or all of the 55 sovereign states on the continent of Africa. The concept takes its origin from Marcus Garvey’s 1924 poem “Hail, United States of Africa”

Mission: To unite all people of African descent and the African Continent.

This business of consuming everything foreign must come to an end to pave way for African Economic Development.
Africa is too poor to give away its economic power by buying foreign products.
African Business Month is a radical shift towards breaking this cycle by promoting Trade between Africans in Africa and those in the diaspora.
We must empower local entrepreneurs to produce goods and services that we need.
Share and invite others to be part of this important event!

THE CANCER GOGGLES

Dr. Achilefu wearing the cancer googles

The cancer goggle works on the principle of optical imaging. Optical imaging enables real-time visualization of intrinsic and exogenous contrast within biological tissues.

According to Washington University in St. Louis, Achilefu’s cancer goggles are designed to make it easier for surgeons to distinguish malignant cells from healthy cells, helping to ensure that no stray tumour cells are left behind during surgery to remove a cancerous tumor. The glasses could reduce the need for additional surgical procedures and the subsequent stress on patients, as well as time and expense. The system uses custom video technology, a head-mounted display and a targeted molecular display that attaches itself to cancer cells, giving them a ‘glow’ when viewed through the eye gear.

In trying to get rid of cancer tumours, surgeons often face the challenge of having to remove excess tissue around the tumour, but not necessarily getting all the cancerous tissue out. This usually necessitates to repeat surgeries, in a bid to get out all the cancerous tumours missed earlier.

However, with Achilefu’s technology, are able to see precisely which tissues to cut out, all in one operation. First, they inject a specially-formulated peptide dye which can seek, and attach itself to, cancerous cells. This dye has fluorescent capabilities that make it glow at a wavelength not visible to the human eye. This is where the cancer-seeing goggles come in.

The goggles have a sensor placed in them which, according to Achilefu, “captures fluorescence from the dye lodged in cancer tissue and projects the image into the surgeon’s field of view”.

This creates an augmented reality that allows the surgeons to see cancer cells glowing, providing real-time guidance during surgery.

Nigerian Candidate to WTO Position poised to be the first African and female Director General of the World Trade Organization however It still needs to be approved by consensus at a meeting of the WTO's 164 members.
The recommendation, confirming news earlier reported by Reuters, needs clearance from all 164 WTO members

But US has began another Trade War with Africa by rejecting to endorse her in spite of being Endorsed by the European Union.
U.S. has told WTO IT CANNOT ENDORSE NIGERIAN LEADERSHIP CANDIDATE

A key group of WTO ambassadors has proposed Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala to lead the World Trade Organization, trade sources told Reuters on Wednesday, clearing a path for her to become the first woman and African to head the global watchdog in its 25-year history.
The announcement of Okonjo-Iweala, who is reported to have gotten the support of a vast majority of members states, including the EU, Japan and China, as the new boss of the World Trade Organization, would have been a huge boost for Africa

Africa would take its rightful place in international stage if she is cleared by all WTO states.
If US insists on having a different Candidate then African ,Caribbean countries and the European Union should block that candidate.
Hope she will inspire reforms that will benefit Africa and give equal power to developing nations.
Congratulations Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

Global Capitalist System Profits from An Impoverished Africa
Trading Gold For Paper 21st Century thievery

This Unequal Exchange of Value Between Africa And Europe,United States or China has continued to erode our Economic Viability as a continent draining us into endless poverty.

If our valuable resources are to be exchanged with paper money, then that printed paper money should be what is printed by us and backed by those values resources we have.

It is unacceptable to allow someone to print his own paper money and use it to purchase valuable resources from us.

The law of money is that it worth the value of resources you have not what others have.

The system is killing Africa and our government shall change this to protect Africa's interests.

Hello
"Who rules by the sword dies by the sword" is an old adage which still applies in modern times. Museveni hatched genocide in Rwanda. He is now hatching another genocide in Uganda. You Ugandans must guard against Museveni to let this not happen, especially those who are close to him, because it will drastically affect you and your loved ones. The liberation is coming to you and that will be the price of supporting a dictator. Gaddafi advised Museveni not to retire, but Gaddafi is gone now, beware. Ugandan forces the UPDf, police, PGB, SFC, etc must get wise and turn guns on Museveni and the gang members holding Uganda for a ransom. Museveni has killed Ugandans since the bush war upto now engaging in unnecessary wars, engineered poverty, crippling the economy, staged killings etc. These must be stopped and we thank God who has come in to intervene, giving us the power to fight and leading the fight. Let's pray for success and fight Museveni together by all means available. Museveni and his son arrogantly talk of crushing others. Are they immune to being crushed also? Time will tell. One day, Ugandans surprisingly will wakeup to see "things fall apart" because "the centre can no longer hold", as the great Nigerian novelist Chinua Achebe aptly puts it in one of his novels 'things fall apart', and there will be great disorder in Uganda. Uganda Homeland Liberation Movement/Front is coming and well prepared with God behind us. For God and my country UHLM/F Openjuru Jakernga Howard.

Imagine for a minute what would happen if Africa, as a United voice, said NO. No more. You will not take my gold at your price, you will not take my copper, my uranium, my diamonds, my coco, my tobacco, my timber..... From now on, I set the price. I process my material and I sale to you what you need. But I set the price. What do you think would happen???? I would love to see such a world. Wake up Africa. Wake up my people. The world is at a turning point. The rest button has been pressed. It's time we took control of our destiny.
