Ethiopia, Nigeria, Algeria and South Africa form the G4 Nations to help AU deal with African issues

ADDIS ABABA, FEBRUARY 25, 2022 — On February 17, 2022, leaders of Ethiopia, Nigeria, Algeria and South Africa met on the sidelines of the 6th EU-AU Summit at Brussels to form the Group of Four (G4) Nations whose goal will be to deal with issues confronting Africa.

The G4, an initiative of the Ethiopian Prime Minister, Abiy Ahmed, was set up with the aim of supporting the African Union (AU) so that it can undertake its work effectively, efficiently and swiftly. Hence, the leaders confirmed that the group will be fully integrated within the AU.

According to Nigeria's BusinessDay, Presidents of the four nations stressed the need to reinvigorate the G4 within the AU as a platform for bringing African countries closer, coordinating actions and reactions for the whole continent in a more proactive manner. 

Leaders of the four nations used the 6th EU-AU Summit to discuss crisis areas on the continent with a view to coming up with practical and effective solutions.

“Our core aim is to become the AU’s platform for bringing African countries closer, as well as a front for coordinating actions and reactions for the whole continent in a more proactive manner,” stated the leaders of the proposed G4 Nations, during a joint press conference at the EU-AU summit.

They also discussed how they could better take decisions in the AU and how to implement them. They also agreed to convene a formal summit to chart a road map for Africa in the coming months.

The presidents of the four nations added that they will be scheduling a meeting soon to work out the full details of the formation of the group.

Forming a group of this nature has become necessary to address the myriads of issues affecting the continent, such as corruption, bad governance, civil wars, coups, natural disasters, diseases and others.

EXCLUSIVE: The Malinowski Bill Is Humanitarian Imperialism At Its Most Malicious

America’s humanitarian imperialism has always been malicious, but ESPDA stands apart from everything other than NATO’s War on Libya as being among its cruelest form. By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst The “ Ethiopia Stabilization, Peace, and Democracy Act ” (ESPDA), popularly known as the “Malinowski Bill” after one of the congressmen who introduced it, doesn’t support either stabilization, peace, or democracy. Rather, it’s the most malicious form of humanitarian imperialism short of a Libyan-like all-out war. ESPDA has mostly been reported to concern sanctions against individuals who the US determines to have either imported “restricted” military equipment, impeded the flow of humanitarian assistance, and/or have been involved in “genocide”, “war crimes”, and “crimes against humanity”. There are several other provisions though that haven’t received all that much attention but definitely deserve to be more widely discussed. The first to touch upon concerns the U

EXCLUSIVE: Dr. Tedros’ Misconduct Defiles The WHO & Disrespects His Compatriots

This objective observation alone should be enough to relinquish him of his duties. The longer that he remains in his role, the worse that the WHO and its UN parent organization’s reputation will become. By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst Ethiopia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs filed an official objection to the misconduct practiced by World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. They drew attention to how he’s consistently abused his high office to meddle in his homeland’s internal and foreign affairs. He’s also accused of continuing to remain a member of the terrorist-designated TPLF that’s responsible for bringing untold suffering upon millions of people in northern Ethiopia as a result of the war that it started in early November 2020. Furthermore, the objection details other examples of Dr. Tedros’ misconduct. For instance, he’s accused of inflating the emergency level in Ethiopia in order to warrant a humanitarian interven

EXCLUSIVE: Why Is The US Politicizing Ethiopia’s Reported Drone Capabilities?

America is concerned that it’s lost its prior monopoly on drone technology due to recent Turkish, Chinese, and Emirati advancements in this industry, all three of whom US-led Western Mainstream Media reports have claimed are supplying the ENDF.  By Andrew Korybko —  American political analyst All states have the sovereign right to ensure their national security interests, especially in the domestic dimension, through whichever means they deem necessary so long as their moves are responsible and don’t contribute to regional instability. Ethiopia is no different, which is why it’s concerning that the US has suddenly decided to politicize its reported drone capabilities. Reuters exclusively reported that Horn of Africa envoy Jeffrey Feltman discussed the issue of suspected Turkish drone sales to Ethiopia during his latest trip to that West Asian country. According to the outlet, American officials have “profound humanitarian concerns” about Ethiopian-Turkish military cooperati
