There is this saying that transparency is the key to good governance and e-governance is the only effective way of transparent good governance.
Also, mere good governance is not enough; it has to be PRO-PEOPLE and PRO-ACTIVE, while good governance is putting people at the center of the development process. Like many have been wondering about Governor Dapo Abiodun’s prowess in business viz-a-viz government, he has repeatedly been proving cynics wrong on all frontiers as a performing governor in the Gateway State of Ogun. Just in 100 days in office as governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has made effective forays in many spheres of policies. On assumption of office, he held series of meetings with stakeholders in the civil service. His intent was to have a detailed knowledge of the situation of the state. Abiodun took the opportunity to intimate them with his vision to reposition the civil service as an efficient organ of government. He minced no words about his resolve to address the anomalies of the appointments of 18 permanent secretaries and recruitment of 2,000 staff into the civil service by the immediate past administration on the eve of its departure. In the last three months, Governor Abiodun has kept the wheel of governance moving at a steady pace. He has also constituted, based on merit, a team of special advisers and aides who are bringing their years of professionalism to bear in steering the affairs of the state in the right direction. Mercurial and very innovative Abiodun is demonstrating a firm commitment to the welfare of the state’s workforce.
