Togbe Afede advocates intensified intra-African trade
Togbe Afede XIV, Agbogbomefia of Asogli State has called on African Countries to encourage trading among themselves to enhance living standards across the continent.
We would therefore be able to grow our industries, provide jobs for the youth and of course provide enhanced living standards for our people,” he said.
The Agbogbomefia noted that the African Union created the AfCFTA to rescue internal trade and would require wholesome support, therefore, traditional leaders on the continent must come together to aid political leadership realise the aspired integration, growth, and development.
Togbe Afede said he was, towards that end, promoting the idea of a continental union of traditional leaders.
I believe traditional leaders coming together can impact Africa’s togetherness more, can promote better understanding among Africans, can promote more empathy and love among Africans than our politicians can do because we are in touch with the grass roots.
