There is an intention of forming the United States of Africa (USA2) which had been discussed among leaders of African nations. Even I heard that President Muammar Al-Gaddafi is interested to be the minister of defence of USA2.
In my opinion, African nations should first establish trade and economic interaction between themselves. This should start by few numbers of countries like between East African, North African, West African and South African countries. Between these segments of countries, infrastructures like communication, road, electricity, etc, need to be constructed and stretched. These will create interactions between people and bring about cultural and values homogeneity as a precondition for unification.
Secondly, the existing African Union (AU), should take the responsibility to prepare the ground works that enables the formation of one African government. One of the ground works can be educating the peoples of African countries and even their leaders. How can current leaders of Africa enable the formation of USA2 when they are propagating for big ethnic diversity within their own country? So, not only peoples of Africa but also leaders of African countries should broaden their mind and scope of thinking for the formation of USA2 to be realistic and eventual. This can be achieved through intensive media education handled by the existing African Union.
