My continent Africa is a very blessed continent. We have cocoa, diamond, bauxite, oil, timber, and many natural resources in abundance and have been selling these to the world for so long. Indeed some of the cities reflect this blessing to some extent.
Africa is also blessed with Universities, Polytechnics, Training Colleges, and Technical Schools that produce numerous intellectuals – Professors, Doctorate Holders, Masters Holders, Diploma Holders, and a whole lot of people with serious academic credentials; some from very reputable universities across the globe, and are in charge by way of leadership at various levels. Additionally we are a highly religious people; we worship God a lot, and we pray a lot. In spite of all these, many (if not most) of the countries are largely bedeviled with age-old developmental problems such as indiscriminate littering, ignorance, illiteracy, diseases, unemployment, stack poverty and general underdevelopment.
