As a result of urbanization in Sub-Saharan Africa has also given rise to the level of poverty in the region and many governmental and non-governmental organizations have attempted to lay considerable emphasis on the issue of addressing the increase in poverty[1].

Moreover Hanson (2007) states the statistics by the ‘UN population Fund’s State of World Population’ that the seventy per cent population of the Sub-Saharan Africa inhabits ‘under slum conditions’ which tends to ‘spur’ the prospect of economic prosperity[3].
