 (1958 - 2018)

AND THE PANAFRICAN FEDERALIST MOVEMENT PRE-CONGRESS

ACCRA, GHANA From 8 - 13 December, 2018

On the occasion of the joint commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the historic All African People’s Conference held in Accra from 8th to 13th December 1958, at the call of Dr Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, the Kwame Nkrumah Pan African Centre (KNAC) and the Pan-African Federalist Movement (PAFM) convened a gathering in Accra, Ghana, on the same dates in 2018, at the Bank of Ghana's auditorium at the University of Ghana, in Legon.

 

The choice of Ghana to host the commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the All African People’s Conference and hold the Pre-First Pan African Federalist Congress is justified by the important role this country had played in the history of the Pan-Africanist movement.

This event was enhanced by the presence of the President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Mr. Nana Addo, Dankwa AKUFO-ADDO who said in his speech: "My generation can fulfill the dreams of our founding fathers and founding mothers: the total unification of the continent and the African peoples, including those of the Diaspora and Afro Descendants ".

This statement of the President of the Republic of Ghana is in complete harmony with the spirit and vision of the Pan-African Federalist Movement.

 

During the pre-congress, the delegates who came from various regions and countries on the continent of Africa and its Diaspora dealt with the following issues:

Ø  The call for the political unification of Africa,

Ø  The manifesto of the Pan-African Federalist Movement,

Ø  The terms of reference for the upcoming First Pan African Federalist Congress,

Ø  The ​​charter of First Pan African Federalist Congress,

Ø  The Concept of the First Pan African Federalist Congress

Ø  The Strategy to Build the Pan African Federalist Movement and its campaign machine,

Ø  Fundraising and Management strategies for financing the Movement and its campaign,

Ø  The communication and mobilization strategy for the Movement and its Campaign,

Ø  Kwame NKRUMAH's book "Africa must unite" was presented

When this work was completed, the Movement decided on the official proclamation of its existence, three years after the call of the Provisional International Initiative Committee (CIIP) launched in Dakar in 2015.

The new organizational charter of the Movement was adopted.  Key members of the International Preparatory Committee of the First Pan African Federalist Congress were elected and the decision to hold the Congress in two to three years was made.  Mali was chosen to host the headquarters of the PAFM

The Pan-African Federalist Movement and the Kwame Nkrumah Pan African Centre jointly launch a solemn call to all African peoples, wherever they may be in the world, to join them in the active preparation of the Congress for the POLITICAL UNITY OF AFRICANS IN LESS THAN ONE GENERATION.
