NARRATIVE REPORTS ON THE ASSESSMENT OF NUMAN AND DEMSA LOCAL GOVERNMENTS
The administration of Local governments in Nigeria has been faced with challenges despite being the third tier of government and the closest to the citizens. With 774 LGAs across the country, it has become increasingly difficult to differentiate between the duties of States and even the Federal Government as a whole, which has led to ineffectiveness and inefficiency of basic service delivery. These assessments were made possible with the support of the Chairman of Numan Local. Government Area, Honourable Innocent Koto, the Secretary of the Local Government– Honorable Foredan Nagapiya, and the Chairman of Demsa Local Government Area, Honourable Chief Elkanah Kados Fwa, the Secretary of the Local Government– Honorable Hilary Philemon and other staff from the Education and Health Departments for their access to the different councils including the LEAs and PHCs.
The Rule of Law and Empowerment Initiative also known as Partners West Africa Nigeria (PWAN) with support from the United States Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement (INL) conducted an assessment of Local Governments’ service delivery to
evaluate the level and effectiveness of service delivery in Numan and Demsa Local Governments, and to educate citizens on which services are provided by these Local Governments.
