Abstract:African political processes need to be studies in African terms and the present article attempts to isolate basic political culture constructs prevalent in the pre-colonial period in order to conceptualise, in African terms, some contemporary political occurrences, on both the macro and the micro lovel, in Ghana and Nigeria. The political instability in post-independence Ghana and Nigeria is a result of their inability to Africanise political change. The differences in the forms and emphases of that political unrest endemic to both countries stem from substantive dissimilarities in the political culture bases of each of these states. Notes, refs.
