Leadership and Development Crises in Africa
By: Victor O. Okocha
About the Book
Leadership and Development Crises in Africa: A New Approach to an Old Challenge is a book written to unearth the immediate and remote causes of the problems in Africa’s political and economic landscape. It asks and tries to answer these two critical questions: Why do we experience bad leadership and why is there a very low level of economic development in Africa? It uncovers the various internally generated, as well as externally exerted, challenges that have kept Africa in its current state of instability and underdevelopment, and proffers an incredible solution in a simple and pragmatic manner.
This book presents and represents a veritable tool for the African Union in its responsibility of repositioning the African continent for greater global relevance. It is a must-read for the political class in all nations of Africa and around the world, scholars of History and Political Science, and all those who are genuinely involved in the struggle for the enthronement of good governance in a continent that is often characterized by hunger, disease, instability, and hopelessness. It is the foundation for a new order in Africa’s political leadership and economic development.
