Increasing Citizens’ participation in the Katsina Local Government Areas

Increasing Citizens' participation in Kastina LGA

On the 23rd of March 2010, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung and the Community Information Project (CIP), organized a community dialogue in Yar Tsamiya Gino, Kankara LGA, Katsina State. By facilitating a dialogue between members of the community and their elected officials for the first time since the elections in 2007, the area’s people were able to express their questions and concerns about how electoral promises towards the development of their community are being fulfilled. It represented an opportunity for them to bridge the gap between them and the political level by making practical requests, according to the needs and priorities of the community. These requests included among others the construction of two Health Centers, the rehabilitation of the road or the construction and engagement of youths in “Fadama farms“. In creating a space of dialogue, the sequence of seminars on this topic promoted by FES and its partners, aims to trigger a more active participation of citizens in governance, increase community ownership of political processes and to improve accountability at this level of government.
