SEARCHING FOR AFRICA'S FUTURES.


IT IS EASIER SAID THAN DONE. YOUR SUGGESTION WOULD WORK IF THE CHASE FOR WEALTH AQUISITION CAN BE TAKEN OUT OF THE EQUATION. INFLUENCE BY WEALTH HINDERS THE DESIGN OR ANY DESIGN TO WORK FOR THE AVERAGE AFRICAN. HOW WAS IT POSSIBLE THAT OUR LARGEST NATION IN AFRICA ENDOWED WITH OIL MONEY AND LARGE ARMY COULD NOT UP TO TODAY COULD NOT DEFEAT A RAG TAG ARMY SUCH AS BOKO HARAM. COMPUTERS CAN MODEL ANYTHING BUT AS THE SAYING GOES, GABBAGE IN GABBAGE OUT. OUR HEADACHE IN AFRICA IS POVERTY AND PURSUIT OF MONEY BY OUR LEADERS THROUGH FOUL OR FAIR MEANS. WE HAVE EXTERNAL FORCES READY TO CONFUSE US IRRESPECTIVE OF ANY MODEL THAT MAY BE COMING OUT FROM YOUR COMPUTERS. UNLESS AFRICA CAN COME TOGETHER AND PUT ASIDE SELFISHNESS BY OUR LEADERS, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE OUR OBJECTIVES IN AFRICA SOONER. HOW COME AMERICA OWES CHINA TRILIONS OF DOLLARS? THERE MUST BE SOMETHING WORKING FOR CHINA AND MUST BE GOOD. IF YOU HAVE THE CAPITAL, THEN CAPITALISM WORKS BUT DR. NKRUMAH KNEW JUST AFTER INDEPENDENCE THAT GHANA WAS POOR AND USED STATE RESOURCES FOR MANY GOOD THINGS. THEN WE WERE CONFUSED BY EXTERNAL FORCES, AND THE REST IS HISTORY.
