In Details | See why Africa has so much yet we linger in poverty

A raw material, also known as a feedstock, unprocessed material, or primary commodity, is a basic material that is used to produce goods, finished products, energy, or intermediate materials that are feedstock for future finished products.

Raw materials are the most important of all economic projects. Without them, there is no such products. Unfortunately, in the schools of Africa today, the African children are being indoctrinated to accept the concept that raw materials are of no value so they must be exchanged with foreign currencies 

If you go to China 🇨🇳 , Europe 🇪🇺 , or America 🇺🇸 to buy raw materials, they will not sell them to you; and even if they agree to sell them to you, you cannot afford to buy because it is the raw materials which create employment, which hold the economy, it is the same raw materials that help the country to develop and advance skilled. It is these raw materials which are fundamentally needed before any economic production can be made possible.

This means, when you take raw materials away from an economy, you have taken away employment and jobs, you have taken away skills development, you have taken away pride, and you have taken away the economy itself. 

Unfortunately, Africa has being programmed into thinking that raw materials have no inherent value so we allow everything we have here to be taken away cheaply at a price which is determined by foreign powers. We sell these raw materials in currencies which are not printed with our sovereign power. This means, our Gold, Diamond, and all the valuable resources are actually being used to back and strengthen other currencies against the Africa's own currencies. 

It is sad to know that Africa contribute hugely into the global economy, but when it comes to the distribution of the outputs then, we are given next to nothing. Soon, Africa will determine and take what is ours, we will not let anyone determine what is to be given to Africa.

The New Pan Africanism must be a strong tool to lead this African Liberation Agenda.
