Governance is a people to people movement. It is a vibrant interaction between people, between structures, processes that support the exercise of legitimate authority in provision of sound leadership, direction, oversight, and control of an entity in order to ensure that its intention and purpose is achieved, and that there is proper accounting for the conduct of its affairs, the use of its resources, and the results of its actions.
Bad governance results to huge loss in economic growth. And not only that, it also affects the human resources, the human ingenuity and the personality of the citizens. Bad governance and corruption deter investment, waste national resources and forebode allocation and increase insecurity.
The poor suffers most from the consequences of bad governance and corruption.
Amongst the major governance weaknesses are: pervasive corruption, weak governance, absence of monitoring institutions which seriously affects economic growth and poverty reduction in our country.
