Madagascar has developed a medicine that has been used to prevent, treat and cure the ailment caused by the covid 19 virus. But since this is an achievement that has eluded the most advanced western drug companies,once again its effectiveness is being undermined because it was made in Africa.
It must be also noted that millions have already been spent developing vaccines and the last thing they want to hear is a cure.
The Kwame Nkrumah Ideological Institute however wish to urge all Africans to view this new discovery as a golden opportunity to rekindle the economic renaissance of the African continent.
We urge the African Union through its Commission on Continental Free Trade Area to seize the golden opportunity to encourage all African countries to coordinate with the Madagascan government to assess and order large quantities of the product to treat the disease in their respective countries.
This move is expected to
1- increase Madagascan revenue from export
2- improve the research capabilities of the drug company
3- enhance the chances of Madagascar becoming a power house of African traditional medicine with products that could rival similar ones elsewhere.
But most importantly this initiative will set rolling the ball on Continental Free Trade which could see other African products benefiting from it. This would improve the lives of Africans and make them understand and believe more deeply in the power of efforts made out of Unity
We also wish to urge African governments, civil society, companies and capable individuals to join this crusade to make Madagascar the first beneficiary of a potential African economic renaissance.
This is a chance to show how much we believe in ourselves. Let us not miss it as a contribution to AGENDA 2063.
UNITED AFRICA is our goal.
