New Year Message 1991

  • Share

"Although our continent continues to face serious economic and political problems, there is still some cause for hope and optimism. Firstly, there is an increasing desire among our countries and peoples to pool their efforts and work together. This desire was clearly demonstrated during the last Summit in Abuja (Nigeria) where the Heads of State and Government, on behalf of their peoples decided to act together within the framework of an African Economic Community. We look forward to the speedy ratification of this important and fundamental instrument so that in 1992 we can seriously embark on the implementation of the Treaty. This is definitely one area of hope which, if addressed with the seriousness it deserves, could enable Africa to forge ahead in its efforts of recovery and development." - Dr. Salim, December, 1991
