FRENCH INFLUENCE ON FRANCOPHONE AFRICAN COUNTRIES AND ITS EFFECT ON ECOWAS

Abstract:

In the research, effort is made towards assessing the role of France in the regional integration of West African countries. On Assessment, it was discovered that the long time linkages of the Francophone countries due their colonial experiences with France amongst other factors, has seriously hindered the process of integrating the West African sub-region. An attempt towards this integration process was champoned by Nigeria via the formation of ECOWAS in 1975. Despite these laudable objectives, the organization has beleaguered with so many problems. Hence, the need to find a lasting solution to the multitude of problems. Based on the global assessment of the problems militating against the growth and attainment of the set objectives of ECOWAS, it is recommended that certain positive measures such as “Re-colonization” of the region by the powerful state (Nigeria), through economic diplomacy, military, cultural and educational programmes be undertaken to attain the set objectives of ECOWAS. In addition, Nigeria needs to strengthen bilateral relations, expand educational, cultural and military co-operation with France. Lastly, Nigeria should be at the vanguard, in collaboration with West African leaders in protecting the overall interest of the West African sub-region.
