WE HAVE TO STOP BEING BEGGARS TO GET THE RESPECT WE DESERVE – Akufo Addo Urges African Leaders

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has pleaded with his fellow African leaders to try to stop begging in order to get the respect the continent really deserves.

He reportedly made this call on Tuesday, December 13 in Washington, DC, at the start of the US-Africa Leaders’ Summit.

“If we stop being beggars and spend African money inside the continent, Africa will not need to ask for respect from anyone. We will get the respect we deserve. If we make it prosperous as it should be, respect will follow,” Akufo-Addo is quoted to have said.

He urged Africans who were expatriates to contribute their knowledge and skills to the effort to improve the perception of the continent. He thinks that in order to successfully alter the narrative and improve Africa’s image, there must be unity of purpose.

“Africans are more resilient outside the continent than inside. We must bear in mind that to the outside world, [there’s] nothing like Nigeria, Ghana or Kenya, we are simply Africans. Our destiny as people depends on each other.”
