About the Polls
The Good Governance Poll, instituted by African Leadership Magazine UK, is in line with the magazine’s objective of providing credible information and support to leaders in Nigeria and Africa at large. The Poll is part of the group’s strategic engagement tool designed to monitor, performance; gauge the mood of the electorates; promote good governance, as well as engender peer review amongst leaders in Nigeria and Africa at large. The Good Governance Poll, is particularly important in Nigeria, following the country’s prevailing realities. While some Governors and political leaders / public institutions in the country have been unable to meet their obligation to the electorates, others have been ingenious in managing state resources and also making concerted efforts towards positioning their states as a cynosure of development in the country.
