Several aspects of other research interest areas including -1- Democracy and
Good Governance, -2- Sociology, -3- Education, -4- Climate Change and Global
Warming, and -5- Lagos State Constitution are highly relevant to this particular
research interest of Regional Integration, accordingly, it is nothing unusual to
have the same articles contained on every web page of every research area.
Thus, the article "Political Economics 2000 & 50" contains some aspects starting
from page 63 that are highly relevant to Regional integration.

You will also need the accompanying "Final note", Click Here
The article talks about using the Bantubalumba model from the State of
Karalabantunga for the integration of African countries along the various
Economic Communities that they are located.
Under the model and for example here in West Africa that is ECOWAS, all the 17
countries will be politically integrated/united as a country with a Regional
Constitution, all of the present Federal Constitutions of the 17 countries will be
deleted for being redundant and irrelevant, however, new States will be carved
out from each country depending on population and economic viability.
The new States carved out will make up the Federating units/States of the
politically integrated country.
Each State will have a State Constitution and the newly integrated country will
have a Federal Constitution.
However, the economic pathway for the newly integrated country is yet to be
drawn out, and this is why you need to see the "Final note".
The permanent solution to abject poverty here in Africa is with regional
integration because most of the countries currently are not economically viable to
exist as countries in the first place, and the money that is wasted on building
infrastruscture, maintaning uselesss Armed Forces and useless Foreign Missions
abroad, all that money will be invested in the people that will certainly improve the
quality of life that will eliminate abject poverty.
Because the article has sugggested that regional integration should operate
along the various Economic Communities, however, it does not mean that
each/any Economic Community will be in control of the process because the
Economic Communities do not have the knowledge/science/research that will
provide the framework for the process.
Regional Integration requires a multidisciplinary approach with  indepth
research/knowledge/science in 4 subjects including -1- Law, -2- Sociology,
-3- Government/Political Science, and -4- Political Economics.
Because every Economic Community has absolute zero percent capability
(knowledge/research/science) in each/any//all of these 4 subjects, thus, it's
impossible for them to do the job and they cannot do the job.  
The process requires intense research that must be carried out at competent
Research Universities, however, everyone knows that we don't have any
Research Universities here in Africa because our Universities do not conduct
research, and moreover, the concept of "Regional Integration" does not exist in
the vocabulary of most people here in Africa.
The people of Africa have been encapsulated with colonial bondage and they
cannot think out side the box and the boundary lines imposed on each country by
colonization, and they cannot think of an Africa without borders.
Even, when you put the concept of "African Regional Integration" before the most
enlightened University Professor in any University here in Africa, he/she will reply
"What are you talking about ?", and the barrier to regional integration in Africa has
been from lack of research and support from the Universities where the
Professors are all very lazy and unmotivated (extremely lazy guys), their refusal to
conduct research has permanently stomped the process.
However, this is where my Research Firm comes in for being the only
Organization in Africa with knowledge/research/science and the
capability/capacity to conduct the research for the process because I have written
several articles on the subject since the past 10 years, and the article
Political Economics 2000 & 50 is the most recent.
In recognition of the fact that more work needs to be done, and as contained in
the "Final note" that I'm willing to spend the next 6 years conducting
multidisciplinary/interdisciplinaryresearch on the subject at either Stanford or
Harvard University, and the plan for the process of African regional integration
will be drawn during my stay at either Stanford or Harvard.
For my joint PhD/JD degree in Political Economics and Law that will take 5 or 6
years, I will expand on the theories and concepts of the 3 pages from Political
Economics 2000 & 50 (starting from page 63 to 66), and my Doctoral disseration
could end up to be nothing less than one million pages of thorough analysis
containing the plan/blueprint for African Regional Integration.
The people of Africa will have the first and golden opportunity of Regional
Integration here in West Africa that will unite and integrate all of the 17 countries
of ECOWAS into one country operating a Regional Constitution.
While it's correct that most people are very eager to participate in this historic
event, however, some people are required to invest a lot more in the project, and
here in West Africa, the people and Government of Ghana are required to invest a
lot in this Regional Integration project because since the past 10 years, the
country of Ghana has shown consistency in political stability which is an envy of
all the other countries here in West Africa, accordingly, the country of Ghana has
earned the respect and leadership status from all of the people of West Africa.
In the integrated West Africa operating a Regional Constitution, definitely, Ghana
has some leadership roles to play and if the process of Regional Integration were
successful today and all of the countries in West Africa united and integrated into
one country operating a Regional Constitution, two things would happen certainly
for sure in favor of the people of Ghana including either
-1-The City of Accra would become the new Federal Capital of the country, or
-2- One of these two eminent citizens of Ghana and ECOWAS (Jerry Rawlings and
Kofi Anan) would be elected as President of the country.
-a- Jerry Rawlings: Former Ghanaian Head of State
who has been responsible single
handedly in bringing Ghana up to international standard and the foundation for the present
political stability in the country. Jerry Rawlings is very popular here in Nigeria and millions of
Nigerians call into radio talk shows daily on the subject of Government corruption and every
Nigerian wished that Nigeria had an individual like Rawlings to clean up the rot and decay in
the system. If all of the 17 countries of ECOWAS were integrated today into one country,
Rawlings would be President because of millions of Nigerians.
-b-Kofi Anan, United Nations Former Secretary General, the people of Africa are
behind modern civilization and the 21st century by at least 400 years, and if Africa must
develop, there must be substantial exposure to the West and modern value system.
Kofi Anan as the former UN Secretary General has the attributes of a leader with substantial
exposure to the West and with 10 years of experience in Governance at the UN, if all of the
17 countries in ECOWAS were integrated today into one country, Kofi Anan certainly
deserved to be elected as President.
With the process of Regional Integration of West Africa, Ghana will be rewarded
for the consistent political stability in the subregion, however, the people and
Government of Ghana must display leadership in the regional integration process.
By and large and in comparison to Nigeria and any other country in ECOWAS and indeed
the entire continent of Africa, Ghana at present looks extremely good, and although Nigeria
is presently messed up and screwed up but good things may develop from Nigeria in the
next few years and for example, we currently have the Governor of Lagos State
Babatunde Fashola who is perfoming miracles and wonders all over here in Lagos.
The point is, if there is any significant delay in the process of Regional Integration of
ECOWAS and if Nigeria develops with good things, Nigeria may challenge Ghana's
supremacy in ECOWAS which means that Nigeria's Fashola too, qualifies to be elected as
President of the newly integrated 17 countries of ECOWAS.
50 years after independence, the rest of the world are tired of the people of Africa using
colonization as excuse for the abject poverty, lack of progress and development on the
continent, however, it's only with Regional Integration that the Continent can make progress
and develop which will eliminate abject poverty permanently from the Continent.  
Please see below at the bottom of the page conditions for the Great Debate which
is also available at the page
Democracy and Good Governance
IAARC will be the first Organization ever here in Africa that will suggest a regional
integration of the various economic communities in Africa into one country under a Regional
Constitution an average of 15 or 20 countries.
The various regional economic communities will include North, West, East, Central and
Southern Africa. Here in West Africa which is ECOWAS, the concept of regional integration
will include the unification of all the 17 countries in the economic block into one country
under a Regional Constitution. For several years since Africa’s independence, and for
almost 50 years, Africa’s lack of development could be traced to many factors including bad
governance, misgovernance, and abject poverty.
Most countries in Africa are not economically viable enough to exist as countries in the first
place and the little resourcesthat these countries have, are being wasted yearly on
infrastructure including the maintenance of redundant armed forces (military) and foreign
service. Because most countries in Africa are not economically viable to exist as countries
in the first place, as a result, most countries in Africa are beggarly dependent on handouts
from the West for survival, however, the West cannot sustain forever the beggarly
dependence of Africa on the West for survival.
The current global economic crisis meltdown which has affected the West dearly will make
the West revisit the issue of wasting money every year on Africa with frivolous handouts,
and it will be reiterated for the one millionth time that, it’s impossible for the West to sustain
forever the beggarly dependence of Africa on handouts from the West.
While the cause of the global economic crisis which has affected the West is described as
“credit crunch”, however, it’s not clear whether or not the several billions of dollars that the
West wastes every year on Africa with frivolous handouts might have contributed to the
crisis.
The huge success of the US and Canada (two of the world’s largest countries in
geographic landmass) has prompted other regions of the Earth especially the EU to seek
regional integration that will bring about the best economic potential of the region, otherwise
money wasted on government infrastructure could be better used by investing in the people
that will improve the living standard of the people with the elimination of abject poverty.
Africa is well endowed with natural and mineral resources, thus, there is absolutely no
reason for abject poverty to be prevalent all over the continent if not for mismanagement,
misgovernance, government corruption and the fact that most of the countries are not
economically viable to exist as countries.
For purposes of drafting the Regional Constitution that will unite into one country all of the
15 and 20 countries in every Economic Community in Africa, the American experience and
the US Presidential system of Government will be used extensively.
The Regional integration and the unification of the various EconomicCommunities of Africa
into one country  will be of immense benefit to the people of Africa because there is
strength in numbers, for example, an Economic Community with 20 countries with 20
different armed forces and almost 1,000 foreign missions abroad will now have only one
military and few foreign embassies abroad under one country, and the money previously
wasted on maintaining useless, redundant and meaningless armed forces and foreign
missions will now be invested in the people that will improve their living standard
which will help a lot in eliminating abject poverty from the continent..
For Africa to develop, it's only the
people of Africa who will/can
develop the continent and nobody
else will develop the continent for
them, however, for Africa to
develop, it requires immense
research and knowledge.
Without research, there will be no
knowledge, and without knowledge,
there will be no development.
Development for Africa will/must
start with regional integration that
integrates all the countries
politically along their various
Economic Communities, and the
research for the process must be
multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary
with 4 subjects including
-1-Sociology, -2-Democracy and
Good Governance
(Government/Political Science),
-3-Law (the Constitution),
-4-Political Economics.
Inasmuch most of the countries in
Africa are not economically viable to
exist as States in the first place, the
money saved from the process will
be used to eliminate abject poverty,
the regional economies will be
harnessed for full potential, and the
two factors will permanently
eliminate abject poverty.
Here in West Africa, and with
regional integration, we can create
at least 30 million white collar jobs
for our youths, and every University
graduate here can make between
the minimum 1,000 and  maximum
1,500 USD monthly salary.
Elimination of abject poverty is the
first step for Africa to develop and
after that, we want population
control that will stabilize the
population from overpopulation.  
Right now, every youth/University
graduate here in West Africa is
salivating at  the prospect of
getting a job that pays 1,000 or
1,500 USD monthly salary out of the
30 million white collar jobs to be
created from regional integration.  
Who would have thought it was
posssible in the next one million
years for a University graduate
here in West Africa to make
1,000/1,5000 USD monthly ?
It's possible and it can/will be
done, and if our youths here in
West Africa want these white collar
jobs and development, all they
have to do are -1- demand for
regional integration, and
-2- support the process.
The process is for their sake/future
But the process requires immense
research that will provide the
knowledge/basis for the process
of regional integration, otherwise,
it's not about wishful thinking.
Since I have offered to spend 5/6
years at either Stanford or Harvard
to conduct the research for the
process, many have asked the
question, what is the difference
between Stanford and Harvard ?
Actually, I don't have any special
preference with either of these 2
great Universities because both of
them are the best Research
Universities in the whole world.
However, because I've done some
research work using the PhD
courses from Stanford in the
article "Political Economics 2000 &
50", I'm more relaxed with Stanford.
However, the true/real versatility
of a PhD/Law scholar is adaptation,
thus, I'm equally ready for Harvard.
Either Stanford or Harvard has
immense research capability to
provide the blueprint/plan for
regional integration in Africa,
definitely no doubt.
Development for Africa is the
World Cup for the whole world.
The rest of the world wants Africa
to develop and make progress,
however, development is a
process that is not wishful thinking
but must be backed up/supported
with research and knowledge.
One vital issue with regional integration here in Africa is about the name that the
newly integrated country will be called.
This should not be a problem, because the countries will be integrated along the
Economic Communities, here in West Africa, the newly integrated country will
bear my name "Adesanya" because the whole process is all my idea, however in
Southern Africa, the country there will definitely be called "Mandela".
Remember when you book your flight to Southern Africa, you're going to
"Mandela" country, named after Nelson Mandela, the Great.
Out of the 5 regions/Economic Communities of Africa (West, Central, North, East,
Southern), the 2 areas that are ready for regional integration are -1- North, and
-2- Southern Africa, and if the research/plan were ready today, and because of
the economic crises in North Africa and if we created 20 million white collar  jobs
for the youths of North Africa, we would instantly have regional integration
because the youths would have forced it to happen immediately with every youth
having a job that paid 1,000/1,500 USD monthly.
However, Southern Africa is equally ready for regional integration because the
region has been the most peaceful and politically stable in all of Africa since the
past 30 years, and for the sake of Mandela the Great, we will start the process of
regional integration in Southern Africa.
If the youths of North Africa would only be patient, the region will definitely be
next for regional integration and we will create the jobs.
The research model
(Bantumbalumba/US Presidential
system) that we are going to use
for the process of African regional
integration, is a "one size fits all"
integrated research, and will
definitely work in every region of
Africa because the "all purpose"
multidisciplinary research in the 4
subjects will be fully integrated at
the top of the research.
We can't/won't miss with this well
balanced and fully integrated
interdisciplinary approach with the
research, we definitely can't miss.
However because the people of
Africa are so/very different
culturally demanding the
mandatory inclusion of the subject
"Anthropology", however, relevant
elements of Anthropology could
easily be compressed/condensed
under one of the 4 subjects,
"Sociology" with soft connection/
compatibility/configuration/
modulation/modus operandi

PROFESSOR GARTH SALONER,
DEAN OF THE STANFORD (GSB) GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS.
The most valuable/indispensable VIP migrant from Africa ever to settle in the US is
Garth Saloner, who is the Dean of the legendary / famous
Stanford GSB and a
Professor of Economics.  See
Question and Answer with Dean Saloner.
Professor Saloner is from South Africa, and he left Africa 40 years ago to settle at
Stanford in Palo Alto, California
However, Africa wants Saloner back, because he alone possesses the magic wand
with the awesome power of the Stanford GSB that will fast track Africa's progress
and development, which will in turn eliminate abject poverty from all over the
continent, with the project Regional Integration.
While it's correct that Africa has always been a hopeless basket case, however,
the children of Africa have immense hope for the future through the power of
knowledge and research that only Dean Saloner can bring to Africa with the
Stanford GSB, and Professor Saloner is in direct charge of an Army of
Multidisciplinary and Interdisciplinary research fellows who will draft the
MasterPlan for the project Regional Integration that will fast track Africa's
progress and development.
If the only impediment to Africa's development is lack of knowledge because
nobody here does any research, Professor Saloner has the remedy at Stanford.
The first phase of the project Regional Integration of Africa will start in Southern
Africa, and while the new country will be named after the legend Nelson Mandela,
however and in appreciation of his immense contribution to the success of the
project, one of the newly created 30 or 35 States in Mandeland will be called
"Saloner", and it should be located in the present South Africa and it could also be
in any part of Southern Africa, that is Professor Saloner's home.
It's also possible for Saloner to be the first President of Mandeland.
Inasmuch the newly created country will be named after Mandela the Great, and no
doubt that Mandela wants the very best for the future of Africa, Mandela should
acknowledge Saloner to be the best man to govern Mandeland as President.
No doubt that Saloner is from Africa, he was born here and he grew up here, and
if/when the opportunity comes for him to be President of Mandeland, he willl not
be denied as a distinguished citizen of Africa.
After 60 years of independence with all of Africa in abject poverty, chaos, anarchy
and complete confusion, and there is no progress and no development, it's now
very obvious/clear (even)  to the lay man that, the racist/absurd Pan Africanism
concept  which African countries used as blackmail for independence has failed at
long last, and Africa has nothing to show for independence but abject poverty,
chaos, anarchy, corruption and massive confusion all over the continent.
US President Bill Clinton has always insisted that for Africa to develop, it's only the
people of Africa who will be able to unlock the great potentials of the continent,
that will allow the continent to develop and make progress.
What Africa has with Professor Saloner, is the hope for a better future that will
unock all of Africa's great potentials through the awesome power of research and
knowledge at Stanford, that will make the continent develop and make progress.
The first phase of the project
"Regional Integration" in Africa,
will start in Southern Africa at the
Economic Community.
As to be expected, South Africa
that is Africa's Economic
PowerHouse will be the "Capital",
and strategically very important in
the process.
The obstacle will be the country
Zimbabwe because of trouble
maker Mugabe, however,
Nelson Mandela "the Great" will
out live Mugabe, and we will
replace Zimbabwe with Rwanda
until/unless Mugabe departs.
To start the integration process,
each of  the 14 countries will
observe a national public holiday
simultaneously on the sameday,
that will be called the "Mandela"
day in honor of the Great One.
The Mandela day in the entire
Southern Africa, signifies hope for
a better future for all the children
of Southern Africa, the future will
certainly be better and full of hope
and opportunities for every child.
Being the model that every other
region  of Africa will follow for
integration, it's battle ready with
the full might of the Stanford GSB  
with knowledge and research, that
this project will be successful .
