European borders were very disastrous for African countries. With no consideration for ethnic groups, many of these were split apart based on the boundaries. In addition, tribal enemies were put within the same territories, increasing the risk of warfare.

The boundaries drawn up by the European colonizers adversely affected the natives of Africa. The boundaries were completely arbitrary and gave no consideration to the historical boundaries established by native tribes, causing people to have conflicting loyalties and generating unnecessary strife. In the 15th century to the early 19th century Europeans interests were focused on Africa with Atlantic slave trade.

Various European countries colonized Africa. They imposed their language and often religion on the natives. In some cases, the Europeans treated the Africans very harshly, stole the land, and made natives work for them.

Is Pan-African a realistic alternative to the arbitrary borders left by Europeans?

No, organizations and alliances like the AU are a great start to solving problems in the continent and maintaining peace, but the same problems would only get worse if borders were erased. The reason the European laid borders are problematic is because ethnic groups were pushed together or split up arbitrarily. Erasing borders and calling Africa a single entity would re-spark ethnic tensions and cause a sovereignty nightmare. Africa can not be governed as a whole and borders show where the extent of a government's power rests.
