Daniel Mwambonu- The Founder and President of Global Pan Africanism Network

Global Pan Africanism Network (GPAN) FOUNDING STATEMENT

I founded Global Pan Africanism Network (GPAN) on 26th January 2018 with a mission to reunite all people of Negro descent, advocate for their rights and freedoms throughout the world. Global Pan Africanism network was officially registered as an international Civil rights and Pan African organization in Accra, Ghana on 8th of April 2019. Inspired by Marcus Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA-ACL) and revolutionary works of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Thomas Sankara, Malcolm X, Col Muammar Gaddafi United States of Africa vision, I created United States of Africa page on Facebook and began promoting Pan Africanism. It has always been my dream to provide leadership that Africa has been missing for decades since independence. Having descended from a humble background where securing a common meal was like mountain climbing exercise, I deeply understand the tribulations of ordinary Africans in their daily lives. I strongly believe that through our unity we will be able to address the poor state of affairs in Africa and restore the lost dignity of people of African descent throughout the world. Our goal is to empower Africa economically, socially, culturally and politically. In just one year we have brought together people of African descent from more than 70 Countries worldwide. This is incredible progress in our first year of intense social media campaigns and I am optimistic that GPAN will continue to spread in the years to come. Black people have been subjugated ,oppressed and dehumanized during colonization of Africa, we have went through 400 years of slavery and today we are still standing to tell how history has been unkind to us. Now is the time for people of black descent whether in Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, Europe, Middle East, Asia, Pacific, United States or Antarctica to come together and build a strong, prosperous and United African nation. In the spirit of Africa for Africans and Africans for Africans slogan let our unity inspire us to stand for each other. Neo-colonialism is the last stage of imperialism and this is coming in different forms some appearing to be beneficial to Africa but if not used well can plunge many African nations into economic crisis and subject us to direct foreign control. We must strive to acquire economic and political independence of Africa. With over 60% of Africa’s population being young people, we are the ones Africa has been waiting for to implement reforms and create institutions that United States of Africa government needs. Through collaborative efforts among African countries we will be able to mobilize resources to build infrastructure and spearhead industrial revolution in Africa. GPAN will give top priority to the following sectors: Education Health Security Agriculture Trade and Industrialization Infrastructure Technology Leadership and capacity building My dream is to work to ensure that each African child gets access to quality education and no African dreams are cut short because of poverty. Poverty is a form of economic disability that has continued to make millions of African dreams nightmares. If every African is given equal access to opportunities to reach his or her full potential, great things will be achieved. We must empower young people through their talents and give an African woman unlimited opportunity to flourish. Throughout the world we are facing racial discrimination regardless of our social status because the white supremacists demonized blackness. As people of black descent it is now more urgent that ever for us to become a nation and create everything that we need for our happiness and civilization. Redefining who we are as a people and as a nation is the first step towards extinguishing lies or myths that have been institutionalized for centuries that “black people are inferior” We must demand equal respect, treatment and equal rights like other races. “Africa for Africans Africans for Africans” Regards, Daniel Mwambonu Founder, Global Pan Africanism Network (GPAN)
