Life has been defined in so many ways through generations. Development plays some part in these definitions, as a young African woman, life equals poverty eradication, which equals development, which means equity sharing in Africa.

Africa has been defined by the world as a developing continent for so long, yet poverty increases day by day, so many remedies have being prescribed by so many economic doctors, yet our sickness keeps growing from worse to worst.

So I ask, who best to describe our state of being than ourselves?

Who best to prescribe a remedy for our poor state of development than our own economic doctors?

Yet our leaders are quick to run to a health patient to ask for their prescription to use.

Can’t you see that it’s failed all these years?

Look around you; you have all the need skills and raw materials to cure your ailment.

What are the ingredients need to manufacture the healing drug?

  1. Transparent leadership
  2. Honesty and integrity
  3. Loyalty
  4. Hard work and sacrifices for posterity
  5. Rule of law
  6. Standing against corruption
  7. Allowing democracy to rule
  8. Getting rid of nepotism in our body politics
  9. Allowing the young a role in nation building

10.  The experienced and old playing advisory roles

11.  Building economic structures made for Africa by Africans’

12.  Allowing our sons and daughters of the land to hold international roles

13.  Utilization of our natural resources for the good of our people

14.  Empowering our nationals by making available the entire necessary infrastructure for development.

15.  Planning and executing projects well

16.  Talking less and doing more for our continent


So I ask, do we have what it takes to move Africa from its current poor state to a more healthy state by ourselves?

Your guess is as good as mine.

What are you doing to heal this land of ours?
