Abstract

The article reviews the Lagos Plan of Action (LPA) towards economic development in Africa by the year 2000 and examines the level of preparedness in African countries to implement the Plan. Nigeria is used as a case study. The Lagos Plan of Action approved a strategy to de‐emphasise external links with the West and East. This calls for the development and full utilisation of Africa′s basic human resource and African‐driven technology. The article examines the internal resources and structure in Nigeria such as education, management, finance, work ethics – the building blocks upon which the success of the delinking depends.
