“…Therefore, governments felt the need to mitigate this issue by playing a central role in the economic planning and well-being of states by trying to secure equitable distribution of wealth. This came in the form of African socialism, which SSA states began implementing around the 1960s (Rostow, 1956;Richardson, 1990;Hill, 2011;Mendes et al, 2014;Linder, 1961;Knox et al, 2003;Peng, 2009;Todaro and Smith, 2009;Davis, 1994;Meyer, 2004;Ayittey, 2012;Nyerere, 1962).…”
