Abstract

Since 1950s, most African nations have gained independence from their colonial powers. Fortunately, independence has brought many changes to these nations and these include multi-party democratic government and western education systems. Unfortunately, the Africa’s economy is the least developed of any continent after Antarctica. Yet, Africa is rich in natural resources and part of its economic base is the export of this wealth. With ethnic ties that often cross national boundaries and continual political upheavals, African national identity is not as strong as racial ties. However, every functioning social system is based on a consensus of values among its members while every society is at every point subject to processes of change that is ubiquitous. Thus, certain regularities of individual’s feelings, thoughts and predispositions to act towards some aspect of this environment are imperative. This paper therefore argues that GOD has created man and African society cannot develop together unless faithful leaders are in command to give effective direction and unity of purpose. Again, a renewed global partnership will require a new spirit from the national leaders as well as many other citizens to adopt new mindsets and change their behavior positively. Indeed, these changes will not happen overnight but with righteousness, it is possible for Africa prosperity to emerge in the 21st century.
