The author of [this] book, The Postcolonial African Unification and Identity Politics Conundrum, is someone I encountered during my diplomatic tenure in South Africa as a University of Pretoria Ph.D. student. Dr. Seife is an authentic and devout Pan-African activist. I read the book with great interest and discovered it addressed the glitches in Africa's political order in the twenty-first century and presented realistic solutions. The comprehensive political study of present African challenges, country-specific insights, and broader perspectives will empower the African reader to develop policy instruments for [the] Africa We Want. Leaders, academics, students, and the broader research community will benefit from the book's exhaustive and complete perspectives. I read it without pausing and greatly enlightened myself.

African scholars such as Dr Seife T.K. deserve a great deal of admiration for their ability to focus on a critical subject and attempt to bring paradigm shift of the mind-set of African policymakers collectively. The book will have an impact on the lives of people by inspiring them to unite Africa to achieve fully the wellbeing of all by achieving zero poverty and full employment. The work is more significant in giving tangible direction to liberate Africa from the divide-and-rule ethnic politics that continues to tarnish a robust united future for all. I observed that the book emphasised four pillars: sovereignty, sanction regimes, collective security, and the establishment of an African-owned financial institution. The African unity sovereignty for all the Africans people to deal with and respond to global power imposition on Africa with the African demand for collective security are very well articulated. The book's endeavour to introduce African indigenous writing by using the Geez script using an Afrikanos paradigm is critical for the change of African languages to achieve continental unity. I strongly recommend this book.... The Postcolonial African Unification and Identity Politics Conundrum should be widely disseminated among African academia, policymakers, and the general public
