He is also a staunch Pan-Africanist and has delivered several powerful speeches alluding to or about African solutions to African problems.

He is an admirer of Patrice Lumumba and Thomas Sankara, the deceased revolutionary leader of the Burkinabe people. He is also remembered for his emotion laden and energetic speech in Uganda at the third Anti-Corruption Convention. He has referred to and quoted them several times in his speeches. On August 28th, 2015, the PAV Ansah Foundation invited him to speak at the 2015 PAVA Forum on Good Governance, Whither Africa?[4]

2015 PAVA Forum

At the lecture, he expressed his serious concern about the energy crises that African leaders have allowed to reach such adevastating stage. He also talked about the issue of African youth fleeing the continent. He blamed them on the economic hardships and the "misgovernment" from their leaders. Lumumba encouraged African leaders to rise up to the challenge of changing the fortunes of the continent.[1]
