The fact that Africa doesn’t have a permanent seat in UNSC has nothing to do with the UNSC decision, but with Unity and strength of Africa, Africa must be united to be heard. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @UN @_AfricanUnion @AUC_MoussaFaki pic.twitter.com/wVke8fB2cQ Click To Tweet

If this permanent seat was based on WWII, w/c is based on hard power in global superpowers, w/c again means serving in the war against Hitler, does that exclude African countries, Africa needs permanent seats. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @EU_Commission @UN_HRC Click To Tweet

Africa needs to have a permanent seat in UNSC with an apology from the westerners for not preparing one yet. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @BBCWorld @AUC_DPA @Reuters @VoltEuropa @AlJazeera @EUtoAU @_AfricanUnion @igadsecretariat @jumuiya pic.twitter.com/eniv57GI4x Click To Tweet

A continent with 1.2 billion Ppl is left out from UNSC permanent membership Bcoz the UNSC was formed before Africa was totally free?? #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @Bankole_Adeoye @_CSVR @nytimes @DrWorkneh @RT_com @POTUS @CGTNOfficial pic.twitter.com/eLHcRjvpiF Click To Tweet

It's really odd to call UNSC - United nation while they left out the whole continent with just a messengers that change from time to time, #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @PresidencyZA @M_Farmaajo @Macky_Sall @MBawumia @ousmane_diagana pic.twitter.com/H8DrLM3PId Click To Tweet

With no permanent seat in UNSC, Africa is never represented & never will be. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @UN @UNGeneva @_AfricanUnion @AUC_MoussaFaki @EU_Commission @UN_HRC @BBCWorld @AUC_DPA @VoltEuropa @AlJazeera @EUtoAU @jumuiya pic.twitter.com/P81als7bVb Click To Tweet

Africa is the one continent that is always troubled with peace and security, maybe it is because we don't have a permanent seat at UNSC to bring the issue to the table always. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @_AfricanUnion @igadsecretariat pic.twitter.com/xlcHiLG0Uz Click To Tweet

The idea of serving a two-year term and rotating off does not square with Africa's demand for fair and equal opportunities in the UNSC. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @Bankole_Adeoye @_CSVR @nytimes @AFP @DrWorkneh @RT_com @POTUS @CGTNOfficial pic.twitter.com/iQM6cJxRNS Click To Tweet

It is so unfair that Africa as a continent doesn't have a permanent seat in UNSC. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @PresidencyZA @AlsisiOfficial @M_Farmaajo @Macky_Sall @MBawumia @ousmane_diagana @UN @_AfricanUnion @AUC_MoussaFaki @EU_Commission pic.twitter.com/Ckg4kkFb0O Click To Tweet

African leaders denounce the unfair representation of Africa in the UN Security Council, regretting that no African country is a permanent member. it's time to change that. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @UN_HRC @BBCWorld @AUC_DPA @Reuters pic.twitter.com/oqKkBQD3dI Click To Tweet

African leaders vowed to rewrite the African narrative in a manner that correctly represents their continent & demands a Permanent seat in UNSC. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @VoltEuropa @AlJazeera @EUtoAU @_AfricanUnion @igadsecretariat pic.twitter.com/ULDn1dwWKN Click To Tweet

I wonder how UNSC is always trying to help African countries maintain Peace & Security but still doesn't offer a permanent seat to represent the continent itself. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @Bankole_Adeoye @_CSVR @nytimes @DrWorkneh pic.twitter.com/FwORhdiamV Click To Tweet

How can you think of solving African problems without giving them a permanent seat in UN Security Councils? #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @POTUS @CGTNOfficial @PresidencyZA @AlsisiOfficial @M_Farmaajo @Macky_Sall @MBawumia @ousmane_diagana pic.twitter.com/Iu3EFfhxfD Click To Tweet

The first thing Africa needs to solve its Peace and Security issue is a permanent seat in UNSC to represent it in the first place, not as invited guests. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @UN @UNGeneva @_AfricanUnion @AUC_MoussaFaki @EU_Commission @UN_HRC @BBCWorld Click To Tweet

Even Hollywood started shooting movies in African countries permanently but UNSC didn't give Africa a permanent seat to tell their stories. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @AUC_DPA @Reuters @VoltEuropa @AlJazeera @EUtoAU @_AfricanUnion pic.twitter.com/wAGV0TmgT6 Click To Tweet

Everyone knows that Africa does not decide anything and never had, even on African issues, for it does not have a permanent seat in UNSC as a continent. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @jumuiya @Bankole_Adeoye @_CSVR @nytimes @AFP @DrWorkneh @RT_com @POTUS @CGTNOfficial Click To Tweet

The UNSC functions on a conventional framework, which was written back in 1945, before the majority of African countries had gained independence from their colonizers—which is by itself a fault to correct. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @PresidencyZA @AlsisiOfficial Click To Tweet

Africa is being judged at UNSC by a conventional framework which is written by the colonizers at the time. Before 1945 most African countries were not even independent. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @M_Farmaajo @Macky_Sall @MBawumia pic.twitter.com/TSkmNv3har Click To Tweet

Africa is home to one of the world’s first human-rights charters: the Manden Charter, of the Mali Empire long before the English Bill of Rights (1689) and France’s Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen (1789). #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @ousmane_diagana Click To Tweet

The composition of the UN Security Council does not really reflect the current world at all, today the notion of power has evolved from hard power to leading power and that's why UNSC needs reforms. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @_AfricanUnion @AUC_MoussaFaki Click To Tweet

Africa is predicted to become the largest population of the world in the next 20 years, will that be just a number to UNSC or they will reconsider giving Africa a permanent seat. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @UN_HRC @_AfricanUnion pic.twitter.com/uM7GLqSNCh Click To Tweet

Africa lacks fair representations among the Int'l important stages starting with #UNSC seats; which should not be a question but a mandatory urgent action to be taken the soonest. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @BBCWorld @AUC_DPA @Reuters @VoltEuropa @AlJazeera @EUtoAU Click To Tweet

If #UN swears to be transparent body then be transparent in representing 1.2 billion African in the #UNSC with Permanent seat, period. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @igadsecretariat @Bankole_Adeoye @_CSVR @nytimes @AFP @DrWorkneh @RT_com pic.twitter.com/oNx12nhNeY Click To Tweet

Decisions were made, heavy artilleries were fired, millions were forced to leave home, countries were turned into ashes in Africa Bcoz Africa doesn't have a permanent seat in #UNSC to address the issue. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC pic.twitter.com/t3OoZJ6pvU Click To Tweet

Poor media representation of the entire #Africa have to stop now; when #Africa must have a media that represent the continent itself. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @M_Farmaajo @Macky_Sall @MBawumia @ousmane_diagana @UN @UNGeneva @_AfricanUnion @AUC_MoussaFaki Click To Tweet

Negative narrative about #Africa which is always about starvation; war & helpless children needs about to stop, time to change, for Africa's real state, doesn't lay behind this stereotypical narrative. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @EU_Commission @UN_HRC @BBCWorld Click To Tweet

Africa is big enough to represent itself and Africans' need to have their own narratives. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @AUC_DPA @Reuters @VoltEuropa @AlJazeera @EUtoAU @_AfricanUnion @igadsecretariat @jumuiya @Bankole_Adeoye @_CSVR @nytimes @AFP @DrWorkneh @RT_com Click To Tweet

Establishment of the International African Media House will help Africans to speak & represent themselves in the way it was supposed to be. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @POTUS @CGTNOfficial @PresidencyZA @M_Farmaajo @Macky_Sall pic.twitter.com/qQIpSigu7a Click To Tweet

How come CNN & BBC were so busy in saying - Addis is under siege - just a while ago and yet won't even write a paragraph about the successfully held #AU summit in Addis Ababa. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @AUC_MoussaFaki @EU_Commission @UN_HRC @BBCWorld @AUC_DPA Click To Tweet

Western Media Houses used to invite experts to explain, give directions & predict economy & political air of the #AU summits in the best way possible formerly but now even a paragraph? #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @Reuters @VoltEuropa pic.twitter.com/Kg3Mv9cLsZ Click To Tweet

The whole idea of - Addis is under siege - was western way of saying pull away from the AU Summit from Addis Ababa to weaken Africa partially one by one. #PermanentUNSCSeat4Africa #ReformUNSC @AlJazeera @EUtoAU @_AfricanUnion @igadsecretariat @jumuiya pic.twitter.com/8eemhgop6B Click To Tweet
