Globalisation as a social phenomenon has assumed a compelling dimension in the last decade. In this sense, it has been seen as the variable underlying most efforts towards development. especially in the developing nations. The massive spread of globalisation and globalising influences has removed the boundaries between nations and aided the spread of values from one end of the globe to the other. In spite of the ubiquity of this phenomenon, African countries have as usual been seen as late starters. Therefore, the idea of the unevenness of globalisation is often used in descriptionbing the experience of African countries in this regard. Globalisation as a process involves a grand or widespread social change across national boundaries. In other words, it is a socio-political and economic process of change, interchange and interaction between various nations.1 The phenomenon of globalisation in this context should be seen as narrowing the socio-geographic boundaries between nations.
