British Nigeria would see instability too due to spill over
Mali actively has had a mixed impact on Africa as a whole. In west Africa Mali, Nigeria, Ghana and Algeria have formed a pseudo-OPEC and various monetary unions, as my next post will talk about actually.I'm very curious to see what effects Mali's existence has had on the rest if Africa, such as what inspirations Nigeria or DR Congo adopted, or if former French Equatorial Africa tried to pull a Mali themselves. Would Mali be seen as inspiration for Anti-apartheid activists, or a source of reactionary fervor in Portuguese Africa?
Also to be clear, Mali does not include Guinea and Mauretania, but does include Senegal, Soudan, Cote DIvoire, Burkina Faso, Niger, Benin & Togo?
Luxembourg :Politically 1975-1980 would see Mali transition into a full council socialist state with workers councils sending their first representatives to local, SR, and Federal Councils. 1980 would see Sankara elected by the Federal Council unopposed beginning his second term as Chairman of Mali.
Not very good. Mali kicked France out, refused to adopt the West African Franc system, and beat the Mauritanians into a collapse. It’s fair to say relations aren’t the greatest. However, Mali has strong relations to the UK and America so that’s why france hasn’t coup’d or destabilized the region like irl.What's the relationship between Mali and France?
