NEW YORK, NY – For the first time ever, a conference call is being called to have a world-wide discussion by Africans on the African Union Chairperson, Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma’s visionary document, “Agenda 2063,” which spells out in detail what she envisions as what the African continent would evolve into by the year 2063. The world-wide conference call will take place on Saturday, March 15, 2014 starting from 5 p.m. on the east coast, and respective times on the central and west coast. This is the biggest open discussion event by Africans ever, that will not involve participants spending a lot of money to participate.
According to the organizer, Dr. Chika Onyeani, Africans from all over the world are being afforded the opportunity to participate in shaping the future of Africa. “The forum is open to anybody interested in the future of Africa, and Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has put forward a visionary document of what she envisions as what Africa will be by the years 2063, like the question of a united Africa, which she envisions at that time Africa will be one country, not a United States of Africa, but a Confederation of African States. With this conference call, no African can say that they were not given the opportunity to participate. Nobody can say that they were not invited – it is an open forum.” I want to emphasize that the forum is for all Africans – Continental Africans, African-Americans, African Caribbeans, African Diaspora South Americans, Diaspora Africans in Europe, or wherever Africans are.
But it is necessary to read the document so that anybody participating will have the right document to discuss intelligently, and can be accessed through the African Sun Times website at:http://africansuntimes.com/2014/02/dr-nkosazanas-agenda-2063-african-unity/. People from around the world can dial into their local telephone numbers and participate. The local access numbers are also on the African Sun Times website.
Onyeani said he is particularly encouraging African women and African Youth to call in as the African Union continues to insist that the future of Africa depends on the women and youth.
Though such luminaries as Prof. Leonard Jeffries, Mr. Melvin Foote, Dr. David Horne, Gen. Ishola Williams, have indicated their participation, Onyeani said that this is not by invitation, and he wishes that anybody interested in Africa should participate, and the end result of such discussion will be widely publicized and made available to African leaders.
Those wishing to participate should call in to – 1-424-203-8405, and the access code is 771294 followed by the pound key(#). Again, the number to call in is 1-424-203-8405 and access code 771294#.
