    This program wouldn’t have come at a better time as this when Nigerians have lost all it takes to deliver good governance for her teeming poor. Corruption and security of life and property are serious challenge to our dear country. We have lost it all due to the absence of good governance. Fortunately, I have three relations who are very passionate about good governance in Ndokwa East Local Government Area (LGA) in Nigeria. The LGA is perceived to be the worse of all LGAs in Nigeria due to lack of good democratic governance. These three guys are ready to perform wonders if give the chance. Kindly give them the chance to change the dirt in that LGA and affect the people positively. God bless McCain Institute for this foresight.
