Poverty is a serious cankerworm that has eaten deep into the fabrics of our national growth and development as a region. Government policies, actions, and inactions are mostly responsible for these menaces in sub-Saharan Africa. They have made these policies in isolation from the common good and exonerated the opinions of the "common man". They have constantly developed the urban areas for their own best interests while ripping off the rural areas, polarizing them and placing a poverty tag on them. This has often become counterproductive and detrimental to the overall national and regional output. The rural areas in these regions need to be given equal consideration as their urban counterparts. Humans exist there and also have needs for good hospitals, roads, technology, and contemporary infrastructure. Common resources need to be evenly distributed to control ruralto-urban migration, and these rural areas must be supported to stand on their own and harness their own wealth in order to discourage excessive migration and manpower losses in these areas. We all need to rise to the task of rewriting these wrongs and creating a wholly sustainable society for ourselves and generations yet unborn.
