Education has played” major role in the development of many peoples and nations. Through it many societal goals are achieved. A country with a high degree of if illiterates would hardly develop. It IS on account of this that the United Nations Organization (UNO) insists that each country assigns at least 20% Of her annual budget to education. Many African countries give less than 13%. This paper argues that education is a sine qua non for Africa’s socio-economic development. Industrialization and technological advancement cannot take place when millions of Africans are illiterates and have not acquired the skills necessary for moving the continent forward.
