GGA-West Africa believes that, a country is well governed when the following three broad objectives are met;
First, citizens must have a say in how the country is run. This implies that there should be democracy, accountability, and transparency.
Second, the rule of law and human, civil, minority and property rights should be upheld and enforced by a legitimate government with separate, independent branches of power.
Third, the government should pursue inclusive and growth-oriented policies.
GGA-West Africa aspires to promote the creation of a governance environment of accountability and the rule of law; one in which business can flourish and Africans can become well-informed and assertive citizens.
Our mission is to stimulate discussions centred on fact-based knowledge researches and be lead advocates of good governance practices.
