NEPAD boss harps on good governance to enhance development

14 November 2013, 18:35

Abuja - The acting Chief Executive of New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD), Dr Samuel Faseyi on Thursday said good governance would help to enhance the nation's development.

Faseyi, who stated this in Abuja in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said that dedication to duty among Nigerians in public and private sectors would promote peace, unity and security of the country.

“Government is becoming more inclusive and structures are being established to ensure that the public is aware of what they are doing to promote good governance in the country.

The NEPAD's chief executive stressed the need for Nigerians to put more efforts in ensuring stability in the polity, noting that this would strengthen the economy of the country.

Faseyi, who said that poverty was reducing in the country, pointed out that poverty reduction was a gradual process.

"You cannot say poverty is not reducing in Nigeria; it is, but it needs a kind of sustainable environment.’’

He said that for a nation to have a sustainable environment, the country must be able to manage the oceans freshwater system, land and air space so as to improve its natural resources.

Faseyi said that the country had improved in the power sector, while the economy of the country had improved both at the state and local levels.

He said that programmes and projects aimed at poverty eradication in the country had made some positive impacts.
