The study in “Developing World” and dependency is not a mere intellectual exercise. It is about the contests of nations and the wily scheming of states and other actors that have on one hand made masters of some people and on the others permanently consigned them into a dependent race since the last five hundred years. This paper is intended to summarize in review, many of the enlightened opinions on this issue with strategies which are suggested both at the level of individual third world states and for us Africans at the level of the African Union AU as well. The paper adopted the qualitative approach whereby data were drawn from secondary sources described, reviewed, explained and analyzed within the purview of the study. The paper concluded that “developing countries surviving in the new globalizing world, political and economic institutions need to be thoroughly overhauled and indigenized. Most importantly, improve their technologies, since globalization is technologically driven. This will enable them enjoy interdependent of states, rather than remain a beggar.
