The book is an attempt to have a bold dialogue with several constituencies about the necessity to find alternative pathways to solve the monumental problems facing the nations of sub-Saharan Africa. It asserts that the most formidable barriers to progress in sub-Saharan Africa are sub-Saharan Africans, particularly, the leaders. Thus, for these nations to escape from destitution, change must originate from within. African leaders are reminded that life anchored on the pursuit of money, material wealth and power by any means, is hollow, empty and meaningless. The future leaders of sub-Saharan Africa are reminded that the Creator has endowed them and the citizens of their nations with the talents they need to develop themselves and their societies. Furthermore, nature has been so kind to their nations, endowing them with more than sufficient natural resources. Thus, they need not continue the culture of dependency on the rest of the human race.
