Interest Group Detail

Group Name : Initiative for Good Governance (IGG)

Chairman : Dr. Charle Ogbu Vice Chairman : Dr. Toriola Ibrahim Secretary : Dr. (Mrs.) Rashidat Mantu

This specialist group is focused on collaborating with the government and serving as

advisory platform towards implementing good governance and rule of law for Nigeria. Good governance is fundamental to the social, economic and political development of a country in that there is order, security of lives and properties including social welfare for the people. Nigeria is in dire need of good governance;

the hindrances to good governance in Nigeria are deeply rooted in tribal, ethnic and religious segregation among the citizens. The people have lost confidence in the ability of the government to protect them therefore there is a call for good governance in Nigeria. Leadership and good governance should be paramount for every other sector of the country to function optimally.

 

Corruption is at the forefront of bad governance and this fuels poor public service delivery and the need to curb it cannot be overestimated. Nigeria still struggle with deeply rooted corruption and bad governance laced with non-accountability.
