Conquering the Sahara

Whenever the subject of African development is brought up, a passionate few are quick to name past heroes that promoted the subject. Well, it is time for all Africans to draw from whatever lessons these heroes bequeathed to us, and build on them in our various spheres of influence. Heroes are not only confined to history.
All Africans should be advocates of pan-Africanism. It is regrettable that we have divided ancestral family members and aggregated ourselves rather selfishly within imaginary boundaries of sovereignty, and in some cases, based on foreign prescriptions. These boundaries have instilled in us ideas of greed, intolerance, and resentment.
