Consul General, Hon. Godwin Adama, at the Africa Day Event at SABC in Johannesburg

The Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Nigeria was present at the Africa Day Event at the SABC in Auckland Park, Johannesburg.  Consul General, Hon. Godwin Adama, Nigerian Union South Africa by Hon. Ikechukwu Anyene and many others were part of the delegates at the event.

Africa Day is celebrated annually on 25 May within the African continent to mark the formation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) on 25 May 1963 and the African Union (AU) in 2002, as well as chart the progress made by the continent since then to advance democracy, peace, stability and socio-economic development.

The theme for Africa Month 2017 is “The Year of OR Tambo: Building a Better Africa and a Better World”. South Africa will use the day to reaffirm support for the African Union’s Agenda 2063 and commit the country to playing its role within the AU to ensure the successful implementation of the vision and plan to build a better Africa.

The 2017 Africa Day will also mark the celebration of 23 years since the country’s reintegration into the OAU/AU and the international community, following the dawn of freedom and democracy in 1994.

“Africa Day affords us an opportunity to celebrate our African identity. Our country was isolated for decades from the rest of the continent due to the evil system of apartheid colonialism. We are now a full member of the African continent, and since 1994, our continent is correctly the primary focus of our foreign policy,” said President Zuma.
