Abstract

In Africa, the period after the Second World War was marked by expansive development policies and practices. Development had a dual purpose of responding to colonial poverty and giving a new lease of life to empire. This paper historicizes the planning process that led to Nigeria’s Ten-Year Plan of Development. It challenges us to rethink why development has failed in Africa. The paper invites the readers to consider the ideological and material interests that colonial powers had in Africa and how that informed the planning blueprints and implementation of the Nigerian plan.
