of development. Arc things that very simple?

Neo-Colonialism in Theory and practice

By Echezona, Nduba C.

It is quite a challenging task to write on a topic as important as
the theoretical and practical implications of neo-colonialism. It
becomes much more challenging when the essence of doing so is to
place the performance of someone who had been in the forefront of
the struggle for Nigerian independence, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe in the
neo-colonial context. It is true that the average Acrican has a general
understanding of the meaning of neo-colonialism in this day and
age. However, every African comes in his own understanding with
his perspectives, his nuances and his solutions to the problem. This
is the case with Dr Azikiwe.
