Africa is arguably one of the most blessed continents in the World. The continent is blessed with so many human and natural resources. It is quite unfortunate that despite all these natural and human resources Africa remains one of the poorest and under-developed continents in the world. The conventional age of retirement for workers in most African countries is 60years, its quite unfortunate that some of the African leaders are far beyond the retirement age.
