Africa demanding two permanent seats at the United Nations Security Council

Africa is demanding two permanent seats at the United Nations Security Council as it calls for reforms of the body to change it, from what has been termed an exclusive club of five permanent members, to a more representative global council that works for the interests of the whole world.

Kenya’s President William Ruto, who is the chair of the committee of African Heads of State and governments on Climate (CAHOSCC), verbalised Africa’s tough position when he addressed the third Pan African Parliamentarians Summit on climate policy and equity in Midrand, Johannesburg in South Africa.

Ruto stated the despite the UN being an important forum for transacting global affairs in diplomacy, peace, security and trade among others, Africa still finds itself disadvantaged by the current configuration of the UN which was established close to eighty years ago after the second world war.

The President also disclosed that for the content to hold meaningful discussions with global partners, African heads of State and government have resolved that partnership summits by external parties shall be reviewed with a view of providing an effective framework for African Union partnerships. “We are no longer going to accept an invitation of over 50 heads of State and government to a summit, given less than two minutes to address, paraded for photo session then travel back back empty handed”

Ruto told the delegates that for Africa, it is time to be bold, strong and resolute enough in order to confront challenges facing the continent with greater unity and commitment. “ It is time to extend our forefathers’ Pan-African dream into a brave new world ignorer to bequeath the people of Africa and our future generations a ,such better, more secure and prosperous Africa that plays its role and makes its contribution in full to global affairs”

On climate change debate,the head of State said the single most important priority commitment that will propel the continent to lasting security, sustainable stability and shared prosperity is an opportunity-oriented focus on climate action. “Our continent’s abundant wealth of natural resources , immense endowments of untapped green renewable energy and youthful demographic profile precisely constitute fundamental elements required to mitigate and then reverse climate change while dAfrica is demanding two permanent seats at the United Nations security council as it calls for reforms of the body to have it change from an exclusive club of five permanent members to a more representative global council that works for the interests of the whole world.

He added that the only way for the world to achieve the net-zero aspiration by 2050 is for countries which presently have net negative emissions like most in Africa, to make up for those on course to missing the 2050 goal. According to him, the clearest pathway is to relocate global industrial production capacity to Africa, therefore, meet Africa’s as well as world’s growing demand for goods and services in a green manner that also enables the continent to leapfrog the industrial development path taken by the global North.
“An African green industry capacity will not only serve global demand, but will also decarbonize global production, thereby fulfilling humanity’s most ambitious climate goal”

President Ruto said current generation of African leadership has historic mandate to retire the discursive profile of the continent that has too often been focussed on the challenges and difficulties faced that depicts Africa as chronically subordinate, eternally vulnerable and perpetually incapable.

“We have the opportunity to empower and mobilize our people to drive transformation, attract investment and inspire partnerships and collaborations across the world”

The continental chair of committee of heads of State on climate change says he worries about mainstream perspectives whereby prosperity is often regarded ironically as incompatible with environmental sustainability and relegated to margins of the global agenda for Africa.

He accused many of Africa’s partners of evasively skirting around the conversation making it difficult and uncomfortable and that explicitly and implicitly, they encourage Africa to focus on managing the consequences of climate change since, only others in the global North are understood to possess the capacity to solve the global problem of such character and magnitude. “ This unjust dynamic is unnecessary and inappropriate, and only saves to hold us back from fulfilling our potential”
