Africa’s contemporary problems have partly been traced to the period of colonialism. Although colonialism bequeathed to Africa some legacies, its negative consequences outweigh the positive ones and have continued to underdeveloped Africa. Prior to this period, Africa had developed a well-organized indigenous administrative system built around strong traditional institutions and abundant natural and human capital resources. Despite this initiative and Africa's wealth of resources, the continent was largely perceived as a land with groups of people who had little or no knowledge of how to effectively harness and maximize their limitless resources. This belief partly stimulated the arrival of colonialism and the scramble for Africa, which consequently brought lots of problems to Africa. It partitions Africa and bequeaths it with inappropriate border designs that have partly contributed to boundary disputes and migration problems in Africa. One of the recurring challenges confronti............

Before the advent of self-reliance, governance, and independence across African countries, it was hoped to be a continent of opportunities and high expectations. However, the reality in most African countries since independence shows that this optimism has been deflated and replaced with drawbacks. Governance crises, leadership issues, tainted and heavily politicized electioneering processes, ethno-political stumbling blocks, the re-emergence of military takeovers of democratic governments, terrorism, banditry, xenophobic crises, and extreme poverty and disease have all plagued African states. The wave of pan-Africanism and democratization in Africa in the 1990s tends to rekindle the hope that Africa is great and a continent with progressive growth and development. Despite this hope and Africa’s endowment of human and natural resources, the continent still remains largely underdeveloped. Today, most African countries suffer from problems of insecurity, violence, economic hardship............

Despite its vast resources, Africa is at a crossroads and has slowly assumed the position of various development concerns, prompting many on the continent, including politicians, scholars, women, and other important stakeholders, to advocate for Africa's development in the global system. Africa has been branded the most underdeveloped region for far too long because the continent has been recirculated by people with little or no vision to transform the continent from its beldam state. The continent's current generation of leaders lacks the renaissance spirits needed to usher in a new and developed Africa. Africa requires a rebirth or a new generation of leaders with reviving spirits to face a variety of challenges, including region fragmentation, history and knowledge deficits, re-emergence of military takeovers, economic downturns, poverty, Covid-19 fallouts, relaying the foundations of the post-colonial state, undemocratic practices and human rights abuses, and the implementation of ............

The 7th Covenant University Conference on E-Business and E-Government in Nigeria 2020 (CUCEEN2020) held from May 26 – 28, 2020. CUCEEN2020 was dubbed “Innovation and Sustainable Development in the Information Age.” It was a congregation of scholars, industry professionals and government representatives where critical issues of innovation and digital government were interrogated with a view to evolving an all-encompassing and integrative strategy for sustainable development particularly, in the information age. This special issue of the African Renaissance includes selected papers presented at the conference by scholars from different disciplines and institutions with a wide range of issues relating to the conference theme using diverse methodology. The articles in this issue can be classified into two main areas namely, e-governance and development related studies. The paper by Aderonke A. Oni, Charles K. Ayo, Goddy-Worlu Rowland, Geteloma Victor, Abayomi-Zannu and Ayo Richard ............

 Continued scientific research activities targeted at giving policy directions and solutions to Africa's myriad challenges are critical to the continent's progress and development. These challenges have stymied Africa's socio-economic and political development. Africa, unlike other continents, has lagged in terms of progress and development, owing to issues such as corruption, conflict, election fraud, ethnic cleavages or identity, race and racism, xenophobic hostility, and resource scarcity, among others. While other continents appear to have discovered solutions to these problems, Africa continues to be tormented by them. It has recently had a growing breakdown in a democratic government in some states, making it one of the continents with the worst histories of military coups, democratic regime distortions, and violations of fundamental human rights in the twenty-first century. Power grabs, unlawful military takeovers, and coups d'état are all too often in Africa these d............

Africa's burgeoning population and the inability to address its growing problems have branded the continent as the world's most troubled and underdeveloped continent. Inequality and rising income differences between African states and citizens have matched this, making some African states more desirable as migratory destinations. Migration within and across Africa is a known factor of hatred, insecurity, and violence among Africans in Africa. Apart from migration tensions, the emergence of Covid-19 has broken Africa's efforts to build its image and capabilities in the global system. The Covid-19 new normal has not only slowed down growth and development in Africa it has also impoverished lives and livelihoods. As a result, Africa is affected by difficulties that have tarnished its image in the global system. Poverty, rising unemployment, xenophobic violence, economic slump, religious and ethnic conflicts, climate change, land grab disputes, human trafficking, pandemics, inequality, cri............

 In the age of rapid globalization, Africa is moving but struggles with teething challenges that account for its abysmal level of development. Despite these challenges, African scholars and researchers through research have continued to identify and proffer measures in terms of policy directions to African governments to address inherent African problems. These measures have significantly contributed to the transformation that necessitates vigorous efforts in research and policy thinking in Africa, especially, among African scholars. While scholars in the continent, have conscientiously engaged in research to unravel African challenges, the African Renaissance has remained vastly instrumental and committed to the vision of African transformation, through the publishing of research works related to African issues and challenges. African Renaissance is a journal aimed at the periodic publishing of research outputs related to African issues or challenges. Since its inception, this j............

 The experiences of African states from pre-colonialism, colonial era through independence and the post-modern period have continue to evolve. As the continent continues to grapple with old challenges, new ones are emerging and these combine to create complex situations. In the face of this development, African scholars, researchers, policymakers and practitioners remain undaunted in understanding the situations and proffering solutions to the challenges. Since inception, African Renaissance has demonstrated unwavering partnership towards the transformation of Africa and the promotion of its cause through the provision of a formidable platform for publishing research from these groups. The Journal through its internal mechanism has continued to project African affairs by accommodating articles on African issues that are of high quality, after they have gone through its peer-review process. The contributions in this Issue are timely and very topical as they cover virtually all are............

 The world and Africa in particular are still laden with developmental challenges and issues which have raised serious concern about the survival of Africa, especially in this era of the COVID-19 pandemic. Africa, despite these challenges, has a potential for significant progress–a transformation that necessitates vigorous efforts in research and policy thinking. These efforts have made many researchers, governments, and international organizations discover, debate, and proposed targets and goals that can sustainably address the challenges ravaging the continent. These highlights the importance of collaborative global attempts and interventions through developmental initiatives, specifically designed to address developmental global issues, including that of Africa.    These developmental issues such as poverty, education, health, gender equality, election, climate, partnership, environmental justice, security, and peace among others have over the years gained............
