This is because:
- 12 May 1994 -- entry into force of the African Economic Community
- 25 May 1963 -- establishment of the OAU, now AU
- 25 May 2004 -- establishment of the AU's Peace and Security Council
- 27 May,1975 -- establishment of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS)
I chose 12 May to remind Africans about the necessity of remembering that the African Economic Community remains the FRAMEWORK for any kind of future for Africa under the African Union!
~For those who tweet: want to get trending #AfricanUnityMonth
~For those who blog: you can WRITE a post reminding ALL Africans about the importance of UNITY
~For those on facebook: you can use your facebook STATUS to remind ALL that many important African events took place in May.
By all means, if you discover anything Africa-related in May, convey it here!
