Not all the African leaders at the summit saw eye to eye on unity
African leaders have ended their three-day summit in Ghana without reaching agreement on how to establish a single government for the continent.

Libya said it wanted it to be set up at once but others supported gradual integration through regional blocs.

African Union Chairman and Ghanaian leader John Kufuor said the gathering had not produced winners and losers.

They agreed to set up a committee to establish a road map and a time frame for a union government.
