Accra, Ghana –
Mo Ibrahim, the Sudanese-born magnate once said: “Many African States are too small to continue to exist independently. The idea that 53 small African countries thought they could compete with China. India, Europe, and the USA was a ‘fallacy’. Africa “needs scale” to compete with the big economic players. We need scale and we need that now, not tomorrow, the next year or the year after.”
