Excellence In Local Governance Excellence In Local Governance Presentation Transcript

  • A SUSTAINABLE APPROACH TO EXCELLENCE IN LOCAL GOVERNANCE IN RIVERS STATE
    • What is the Excellence in Local Governance Initiative?
    • The ELGI is a program of the Rivers State Sustainable Development Agency, RSSDA, designed to transform the current abysmal state of local governance in Rivers State.
    • It is a program designed to sensitize top leadership of the Local Government Areas on quality and excellence in service delivery .
    • It will use an incentive and award driven platform to encourage healthy competition among the local government areas.
    • The Excellence in Local Governance Initiative became necessary because of the following:
    • Poor service delivery in local governance in Rivers State;
    • Political exclusion of hitherto marginalized groups at the local governance level;
    • Slow development of the local government areas;
    • Lack of trust by the people in the ability of the elected officials to deliver good governance at the local government level;
    • Increased underdevelopment of rural areas under the control of the local government councils.
    • The aims of the Excellence in Local Governance
    • Initiative include the following:
    • To encourage healthy competition for rewards and incentives among the leadership of LGAs;
    • To create an assisted and competition-driven platform for recognition of excellence in local governance;
    • To provide a possible preparatory ground for future leadership
    • To expand the horizon of local governance by employing the twinning cities concept.
    • The objectives of the ELGI program include the
    • following:
    • To assess the performance of elected leadership and staff of LGAs;
    • To reward the excellent performance of elected leadership and staff of LGAs;
    • To ensure improved service delivery by elected leadership and staff of LGAs;
    • To create a competition and award-driven platform for recognizing excellent performance in local governance;
    • To encourage the adoption of e-governance as a vehicle for improved local governance in Rivers State;
    • It is hoped that the twinning concept, will be the
    • topping on the cake of ELGI.
    • Exposed to the reality of cities where excellent
    • local governance has delivered tangible
    • benefits, the elected officials of LGAs in Rivers
    • State will be encouraged to apply best practices in
    • service delivery in their
    • respective LGAs.
