25th May, annually, is African Union day, the day for the celebration of the gains the continental body, and the continent, has presumably made across the past year.
We can’t speak for the rest of Africa, but down here in Ghana, we can identify with rising tariffs, erratic power, and public corruption, which our President believes does not exist.
To mark the day, the President took to his social media platform of choice, twitter, with a curt message to his followers.
Africa is rising, there is no question about that. Happy AU Day.”- President Mahama
The AU was founded in 2001 to replace the erstwhile Organisation of African Unity (OAU), which was seen as obsolete. It’s current chair is Chadian leader Idris Derby, who took over from Robert Mugabe.
So, happy AU day everyone. Perhaps we have much to celebrate that we aren’t seeing, but our President sees it all, as clear as day.
Africa is rising, there is no question about that. Happy AU Day.
