Abstract: Nowadays, the mystique of religion in developing countries is plain to see. In Africa, religion shows no sign of disappearing or diminishing as development theorists have generally supposed. Africans have certain religious values which are sources of inspiration and strength. If incorporated, they can greatly contribute to development initiatives in their planning, implementation and monitoring stages. “The Euro-Western development practitioners usually excluded consideration of the religious dimension in formulating development policies towards Africa" (Gerrie and Ellis 2006: 351-367).
