According to Emmanuel Macron, the challenge Africa faces today is completely different. It’s much deeper and civilizational. In listing these problems, he mentioned “Failed states, complex democratic and demographic transitions”.
He stated that the resolution of these problems will take a more rigorous governance, a fight against corruption, a good governance, a successful demographic transition, as well as a transformational plan that is developed according to African interest, by and with African leaders.
He has equally attributed African problems to the high birth-rates by stating that, “When countries today have seven or eight children per woman at the moment, spending billions of Euros outright would not stabilize nothing.”
This is coming from a leader whose country’s activities in Africa is questionable for a century. He doesn’t come to his senses that this continent is holding France (against wishes of most Africans) to become global force.
