President Julius Maada Bio of Sierra Leone says African
deserves at least one permanent seat on the UN Security Council, He
argues that the some of the greatest decisions the council comprising of
France, Russia, United States, United Kingdom, and China makes are
about Africa. So it make sense to give an African country a chance to be
on the world’s most powerful cartel, right?
It seems like a bright idea, but what do Okong’o, Nado, and AST producer Khaboshi think?
