Financial strength and stability gives a nation the ability to focus and solve other issues. But for many African nations, financial strength seems to be a tall dream. In many ways financial strength and stability has eluded these African nations for so long. Following the attainment of independence of many of these nations, little progress has been made in the attainment of financial strength in some individual economies.
