To Understand this one would have to look at different aspects like the development theory and also the History of Nigeria ( Colonization). First on the issue of development theory, the third world entirely is characterised as poor, underdevelpoed/develpoing Countries that are dependent on the Rich …North, so in Nigeria's case after decolonization as a state it began to fail because of the instabilty in power, ethnic and religious conflict, sabotaging Public Industries, badleadership/corruption and of course Civil war. Most importantly Nigeria and the periphery(developing) provides primary raw materials and cheap labour and the rich developed produces and exports at a higher cost. Making it dependent on the Rich developed Nations. A good example is Nigeria's crude oil, large reserves of Crue oil are exported or refined by foreign Oil Corporations at the expense of the Nigerian people because Nigeria has no Functioning Refinery. Projects are always sabotaged, foriegn aid always diverted. (MORE)

A developed country is one which provides a high standard of living to its people as a result of the per capita income and Gross Natural Product. Many European countries which have already developed all their resources and have reached a high level of development can now generate their own capital a…s they do not have any financial restrictions and can thus enjoyed a high standard of living, a high capital income and a high productivity. In contrast, under developed nations are said to be court up in a vicious circle of poverty.

Their is a very real answer to this question. It is how we are wired, genetically. This factor produces a thing called culture, and culture dictates our interaction in the communities around us. Dont think for one minute that there is a lack of intelligence or some sort of inhibiting factor, Africa …is known for its simplicity, and the locals are happy with thir existence. My genetics dictate something different, and I strive to create and origionate whilst the more common approach is emulation due to lack of apparent requirement for change. In short, why complicate life, you live, you replicate and you die. This mindset makes it easy for the thugs and criminals like Robert mugabe to take advantage of a population that really doesn't see the link between industry, science, and western religion and the herd of cows sitting on the hill. Maybe the west has to question its slave mentallity where so few have so much and so many have so little. Either way we are both in a sad state of affairs. Incidently, research will show that in the ancient sumarian texts, Africa was known as ABZU or hell as we know it in the bible. (MORE)
