Chief Ombudsman calls for improved good governance in developing regional states
Jijjiga, December 29 (WIC) -The Ethiopian Institution of the Ombudsman underscored the need to address problems of good governance to maintain the ongoing economic growth in states in need of special support.
The remark came at a good governance mobilization forum held under the theme, “Good Governance for Fair Development” in Jijjiga town on Thursday in the presence of leaderships drawn from the aforementioned states.
Chief Ombudsman, Fozia Amin, on the occasion said despite the encouraging economic growth, a lot need to be done to bring about good governance in states in need of special support.
Accordingly, higher official in those regional states need to identify the administrative gaps and do their level best in order to ensure good governance, Fozia indicated.
Deputy Chief Administrator of Somali State, Abdihakim Ige, on his part said the state is currently undertaking activities that involve the public so as to quench their thirst for development and good governance.
In spite of the encouraging results registered in the areas of development, good governance and democratization process during the past years, we are far from ensuring good governance, he said.
Hence, the good governance mobilization forum would contribute a lot towards assisting the activities underway to ensure good governance in the state, he said.
Research papers on topics related to good governance were presented by scholar from Jijjiga University at the forum held in the presence of higher government officials drawn from Afar, Benishangul Gumuz, Gambella and Somali states.
