relationship between good governance and development is one of the most
important areas of research in international development. Despite
contention and polarization among researchers on the linkage between
good governance and development, much of the previous literature has
focused on how better governance leads to higher levels of development.
The objective of this study is to examine the relationship between good
governance and development with a specific focus on Africa and
impediments of good governance in the continent. To this end qualitative
research methodology was employed. The data has been collected from
secondary sources. From the study it has been revealed that good
governance is critical for sustainable economic growth. The study
further demonstrates how countries with better governance profiles tend
to attract higher levels of foreign direct investment and faster
economic growth rates, control corruption more than others. This is
because in countries with good governance, governments put their
political, administrative, and financial office in a better order and
thus, developing nations need; to identify their governance problems and
improve their governance structure more generally on a sustainable basis
so as to achieve development.
