The Good Governance Grassroots (3G) Project Team, an advocacy group, has urged the government to provide more infrastructure in Tarkwa Bay to ensure the island contributes effectively to the growth and development of Nigeria.
Speaking on the sidelines of a “Capacity Building Training for Community Leaders” in Lagos recently, Transparency Advocate, 3G Project Team, Abayomi Akinbo, the project director said the communities in Tarkwa Bay were chosen because of poor impact of administration in the area, adding that the project team will act as a mediator between the government and members of the communities so as to achieve good governance.
“We chose these communities because there is a lack of government impact here and there is this disconnect between the inhabitants and those representing them at the government level, and the effect is that they don’t have the necessary facilities they should have.
“We are here to bring the youths together, both the men and women, to help them gain attention and reach out to the government and other stakeholders so as to achieve good governance,” he said.
