The Head of Graduate School of Leadership and Governance at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Dr Kwaku Osei Akom has rubbish perception that the African Union (AU) has failed and not relevant in its establishment.

He explains that the African Union has played various roles to bring peace and promote unity in countries like Liberia, Kenya, Somalia, and Cote d’Ivoire.

Dr. Osei Akom stated that even though the AU might have some challenges it has relatively chalked some successes on the continent.

He tells Adom news that the influence of former colonial masters on some countries has made created a big challenge for the AU.

According to him, even in this era some African countries still rely on their colonial masters for financial support hence making it difficult for the AU to operate as it was established.
