In the context of West Africa and Africa, contemporary democracy and economic development is a matter of choice and the interplay of internal and external forces at play. The long-term negative effects of colonial legacies and lack of strong democratic institutions are the exact outcome of democracy and development in west Africa.

Ghana is a good example of the dividends of democracy in west Africa, regardless democracy has never been practiced perfectly in any country in its true meaning.
