Making Local Governance Work - press conference

THE ORDERLY SOCIETY TRUST…For the Common Good.

The Orderly Society Trust invites journalists and members of the public to the press launch of their landmark project- Making Local Governance Work.

The Orderly Society Trust-OST was established in 2007 to nurture and support institutions, ideas, values, practices and conventions, which support order in the society.

In line with the organization’s objectives, OST, in partnership with the Ford foundation and Human Development Initiatives, is conducting a nation wide research and advocacy campaign aimed at building capacity amongst local government officials, promoting civic participation and inspiring accountability and transparency from local government officials.

The project kicked off in January this year. Initial surveys have been undertaken in Ibadan North and Ido Local Governments in Oyo State and will continue into 2010.

Journalists are invited to attend the press briefing at 11a.m on Thursday April 2nd at The Elias Centre on 4a Ademola Street, Off Awolowo Road.

“This is an important project for us because the local government is the closest tier of government to the people and a significantly neglected arm of government. Through this programme we intend to highlight the good practices in local government and the everyday challenges they face on ground. Another aspect of our work will be to share the findings of our research with both policymakers and the public to initiate a discussion on local government. We anticipate that our strategic partnership with the media in disseminating our research findings will provide key input to local government policy reform,” says the Programme Coordinator- Lanre Shasore.

For press accreditation for the briefing, please call 01 2793453
