AFRexit? What would your vote be?

The vision of the African Union is of an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa,  driven by its own citizens. However, time and time again the aspect of a ‘people-centred union’ comes into question.

    Even on the minimum, and as social beings, every Citizen needs good neighbourliness and that is what the Blocs intend to inculcate in us.
    You cannot leave in isolation. The blocs lessens the costs of interactions. Free movement,non-tariff barriers, employment opportunities, Globalization more efficiently and effectively.

    “what we should be asking is “What do we want to Change in AU?”

    I don’t think the right question is an “IN” or “OUT” of AU, David Cameron asked the British citizens the wrong question and received the wrong answer. There is power in the market strength -population (China a good example), few year ago, they refused to comply with the IEEE Wi-Fi standard and created their own that has been so successful today, reason being that they have the strength/largeness of the market i.e. population to support such snob of world standard (based on US proliferated standards). I was in Shanghai then participating in a group of future technology discussion forum lead by many renown technologists when the minister of Industry told us the news. So, what we should be asking is “What do we want to Change in AU?” I will like to see Africa benefit from the “Power of ONENESS” This portends so much benefits if we have one voice to leverage against China, India, Europe, US and the rest of the world etc. We are the last market result to be exploited approaching 1.5Billion of relatively untapped consumers hence the global name “Frontier market” as we are now described. If we miss the opportunity to unite to our benefit, we will have no one to blame.
