Abstract: As a consequence of several factors, the last three decades have witnessed a deterioration of socio-economic condition in many African countries. Among the internal factors are (a) the persistent differentials in incomes between rural and urban areas as well as the relative neglect of the former; (b) the establishment of a few large-scale manufacturing industries and widespread application of import substitution strategy based on capital technologies that1 do not address problems of employment and labour absorption; (c) delayed demographic transition; arid (d) unstable apolitical structures.. On the other hand, the exogenous factors include: (a) the hostile external economic environment; (b) persistent decline in world prices of primary commodities (eg. fluctuations in cost of oil and other manufactured goods; (c) servicing of heavy debts; and- (d) frequent droughts (Adedeji, 1990).
