The term governance has being defined by the World Bank to mean “the manner in which power is exercised in the management of a country’s economic and social resources for development’
Basically, while governance is the exercise of authority-political, economic and administrative to manage national resources and affairs, good governance is the art of making the government more receptive and accountable to the needs and aspiration of its populace.
Good governance has eight major characteristics; It is Participatory, Consensus oriented, accountable, transparent, responsive, effective, equitable, inclusive and follows the rule of law. It ensures that corruption is minimized, the views of the minorities are taken into account and the voices of the most vulnerable in society are heard in decision making. It is responsive to the present and future needs of society.
Good governance is a precondition for sustainable development of every sector of the nation. While good governance can improve development effectiveness, sustainable development enhances a good system of government that preserves the wealth of a nation for generations yet unborn.
So why this epistle you might ask? I honestly do not intend to play the blame game because it won’t lead us anywhere however I seek to bring to our consciousness that as young people we do have power to begin to bring about the change we need in our obviously corrupt society.
Lets begin to think of ways to promote democratic principles, promote the respect for human and peoples rights , promote co-operation in all fields of human activity so as to raise the living standard of the Nigerian nation.
I believe in one Nigeria, I believe that our struggles are labour pains preceding the birth of a new, strong and blooming Nigeria.
HAPPY NEW MONTH!
A few days ago, a couple of friends were discussing about the economic situation of my country Nigeria. Someone asked a question; how can we build products and services indigenous to us and make them internationally acceptable
The question got me thinking
- What products are indigenous to us?
- How do we improve on them
- What are the processes involved in making them globally acceptable?
Well I decided to share my thoughts with you guys and brainstorm together
The famous football clubs Real Madrid and Manchester United are phenomenally successful and wealthy football teams not by eschewing their locale but by emphasizing it.
Emma Bridgewater ceramics is fashionable and pricey because it is still made by hand in the historic home of British pottery, Stoke-On-Trent
Italian fashion maintains its luster and its margins not by outsourcing manufacturing to china but by using and showcasing local textiles and intricate handiwork.
By nurturing and articulating local roots these guys have built successful brands. Please share your thought on this.
