Birthing A Good Governance.
An insight of its Cardinals.

Laudable are the orchestrated histories of our past heroes in their struggles for Liberation and Good governance.

To start with
Governance typically involves well-intentioned people who bring their ideas, experiences, preferences and other human strengths and shortcomings to the policy-making table.

How is this possible? Going by the present day government. The story of the modern day government has become a worry for lovers of rule of law and democracy. The worries have been generated through Bad governance which encapsulates so many illegalities in the rule of law. This is because the society has been bamboozled by cabals.
The rhetoric above would be the basis of this piece.

Good governance encapsulates Participation, consensus orientation, accountability, transparency, responsiveness, obedience to the rule of law, all of which are lacking in the modern day system which make ineffective the idea of good governance.

A start of this approach should be in various homes, there should be in every society, the elected representative and individual leadership traits that would check our well-being towards achieving a better society.


Rule of Law
Good governance requires fair legal frameworks that are enforced by an impartial regulatory body, for the full protection of stakeholders.

Transparency
Transparency means that information should be provided in easily understandable forms and media; that it should be freely available and directly accessible to those who will be affected by governance policies and practices, as well as the outcomes resulting therefrom; and that any decisions taken and their enforcement are in compliance with established rules and regulations.

Responsiveness
Good governance requires that organizations and their processes are designed to serve the best interests of stakeholders within a reasonable timeframe.

Consensus Oriented
Good governance requires consultation to understand the different interests of stakeholders in order to reach a broad consensus of what is in the best interest of the entire stakeholder group and how this can be achieved in a sustainable and prudent manner.


Accountability
Accountability is a key tenet of good governance. Who is accountable for what should be documented in policy statements. In general, an organization is accountable to those who will be affected by its decisions or actions as well as the applicable rules of law.

Participation
Participation by both men and women, either directly or through legitimate representatives, is a key cornerstone of good governance. Participation needs to be informed and organized, including freedom of expression and assiduous concern for the best interests of the organization and society in general.

The clamour for good governance is rife, going from critics of writers, public opinionists against the ill system of the government.

Why not activate the true rationale behind public corporations?
Why not make effective the principle of ombudsman?
Why not actualize bureaucracy?

All of which are possible through a discourse that attempts to capture all of the considerations Involved in assuring that citizen’s plights are addressed in policy initiatives.

We dedicated days of months for the remembrance of our past heroes.
Are we truly appreciating them?
Let’s Explore a true definition of Democracy!!!
Gracias to the departed souls of the heroes that saw the birth of Nigerian independence.
