ON THE OCCASION OF "AFRICA DAY"

Acha Harrison Nigeria Official Ignite The Youth Statement in Celebration of Africa Day Today we celebrate Pan-Africanism; the Renaissance, Rising and Unity of Africa! Africa is a continent on the move geometrically in terms of her rapid growth and development.

ELLEN JOHNSON SIRLEAF: The Liberian "Iron Lady"

President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Photo Credit: Emansion By Ahmed Konneh - Liberian Correspondent President Sirleaf’s life and incredible achievements should be a wake up call and a point of reference to the many African women who think gender is a barrier to achieving their full potential. Born in a male dominated a society, President Sirleaf has not only proven that the “gender- barrier” debate is a myth but shown that with determination and focus, women can be anything they aspire to be. Young women of nowadays must take lessons of possibilities from the pages of president Sirleaf’s heroic life and struggles for distinction in a men dominated African society. As Mwalimu Julius Nyerere would say “It can be done, just play your part.”
