To free Africans from intellectual bondage, empower them to take charge of their own destiny and devise African-based solutions to Africa’s problems;
To advocate and seek establishment of which will help promote and safeguard the four cornerstones of freedom: intellectual freedom, political freedom, economic freedom and religious freedom;
To resist the imposition of alien ideologies and systems on Africa;
To provide an “African input” in international fora and the formulation of Western (aid) policies toward Africa.
The freedom that Africa fought for from colonialism was perfidiously betrayed. True freedom and development never came to much of Africa. Independence was in name only. One set of masters (white colonialists) was replaced by another set (black neo-colonialists) and the oppression and exploitation of the African people continued unabated.
