Ike Udogu highlights how the political, social, and economic development enterprises are to be vigorously pursued in order to advance the continent's renewal. Bringing into focus the discourses that are significant to move the continent forward, the author provides possible strategies that might lead to peaceful coexistence, development, and generation of wealth for the area's recovery.
