Scientific education helps propel agrarian societies into one which is industrialised. Traditions are sharp contrasts to scientific principles.

The Euro-American system, no doubt, is arguably a developed system in political, economic and values. It is only prudent to look up to these countries to develop since they have passed through the stages. However, as much as structural transformation is evident in these developed countries, human development is poor. People in these countries find ways and means to exit the surface of the earth. Suicide has become a normal activity in such countries. Life is debased.

Again directly imitating the foreign models kills the state’s ingenuity to develop. The relevance of the roles of government and other stakeholders is undermined, this is because, the practice in essence is eating what they eat, wearing what they wear, learning what they learn and preaching what they preach. Let it be noted that no solution is universal and the very fact that it works for them does not imply that it would work for Africa. Foreign aids help to push governments to realising their goal. In cases where government must of necessity implement certain policies with little or no funds, foreign aids come to fuel the implementation of the said policy. Nonetheless, it is also one fact that makes African states grow backwards. We seem to be growing but in actual sense we are not. It comes with terms and conditions that turn to stifle both structural and individual growth. It also placates or blunt the revolution aspirations of the working class.

Elimination of traditional values; the two concepts, science and traditions are immiscible. Whereas science empirical, tradition is normative, whereas science is based on principles and procedures, tradition is based on historic(ancestral) precedents and religious doctrines, this makes the two hare to fit in one box hence the elimination of one; traditional values. This would pave way for science to develop the society, technological breakthrough and industrialisation all spring as a product of science. However, traditional values forms part of culture. Culture is an inherent a society and generally makes up a state. If there is an elimination in the basic module of this linear build-up of the state, traditional values to be precise, there would be a great disruption in the formation of the straight. In other words, morals that are imbibe from these traditional values which go along to foster national integration would no longer be in practice rather those ones that are alien is what would subsequently be the prevalent practice. Besides, morals are not universally accepted; in this case, what is good for the goose is not good for the gander.

Owing to the fact that Africa is underdeveloped because of their relationship with core regions, it is viewed by this set of theorists that a delinkage of peripheral areas from core regions would solve the problem of underdevelopment. Once there is no connection between the core and periphery regions, there would not be any case of raw material extraction or exploitation from periphery regions. There would not be any vulnerability for periphery states. It also re-establishes the independence of those periphery states. However, let it be stated that no state is an island. States are interdependent because of the unequal distribution of natural resources on the planet. Even the most developed states are still dependent on other countries for certain needs. United Kingdom depends on Ghana for cocoa. Therefore, come what may there cannot be absolute delinkage of periphery states from core regions.

Another strength worth discussing under this theory is the presence of State owned enterprises. These institutions expand the base for employment of the citizenry of a state. It will also bring revenue as goods and services are taxed. It puts the government in the position to utilise its dirigisme arm. Nonetheless, the issue of sustenance of these state owned enterprises is not addressed. A number of these enterprises in Ghana have either been collapsed or sold out to private entities. The seemingly surviving ones are also under-resourced. Ghana state housing cooperation was built in the 1960s by Nkrumah, however in this technologically advanced era, they still operate with Pentium 4 desktop computers and shelves to keep documents. That is the state of some of these state owned enterprises, very appalling. Again, import substitution industrializations is one of the strengths to be explored. Where a country fully patronises what it produces and nothing alien, then development is certain. It boosts local industrialisation which could culminate into a global one. It also positions periphery states where they can have a voice for themselves in the global space, moving from price takers to price fixers. It further establishes the bases of self-reliance. However, the lack of technological autonomy could greatly hinder the success of this initiative. For a country to restrict the consumption of imported goods then that country must have had the capacity to produce, process and distribute its produce to its citizens accordingly. In the absence of these contrivances, industrialisation becomes a mere ideology and not a realism.

The Feminist on another hand believe that the integration of women in the development process would help realise the whole essence of development. When women are given equal opportunities to be who or what they want to be, then development would have certainly occurred. Also, the quest for equity and equality is gradually realised. However, within the movement of women fighting for this recognition lies series of divisions.
