ABSTRACT
The article evaluates efforts to eliminate poverty and boost entrepreneurship in Africa. It considers to democratic constitution-making to produce institutional arrangements that guarantee the rule of law, which refers to a principle of governance, and enhance peaceful coexistence and sustainable development as the top priority for all African countries. Openness and transparency in government operations and communications are viewed as important factors to public policy and government in Africa as these elements benefit citizens and the general public. An effort to protect the rights of all citizens is suggested to fight poverty and improve human condition. It also proposes Africa to engage in institutional reforms through a holistic approach.
