CVL Good Governance Programme is aimed at strengthening Democracy, Transparency and Accountability at the local, state and federal government levels in Nigeria. The programme focuses on bridging the gap between public office holders, electorates and civil society organisations through town hall meetings, networking sessions, workshops, and civic engagement. Specific objectives include:

  • Strengthening the capacity of the electorates and civil society organisations to effectively and collectively demand accountability and transparency from public office holders;
  • To establish appropriate mechanism for constructive engagement with policy makers, and ensure inclusive participation of young people in governance;
  • Improving local government, states and federal government ministries, departments and agencies’ management practices in order to deliver better quality of services to Nigerian citizens in a transparent, accountable and cost-effective manner.
