Yobe Government, DFID to Hold Governance Retreat


- Advertisment -

By Our Reporter

Members of the Yobe State Executive Council and other key officials of the state government, including some permanent secretaries and heads of parastatals, will hold a two-day governance retreat in Abuja in collaboration with the state Partnership for Accountability, Responsiveness and Capability Programme (SPARC) of the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) from March 30 to 31, 2016.

The retreat, with the theme: ‘Keeping Abreast of Governance Reforms in Yobe State,’ is designed to review the progress made so far in governance reforms in the state and further explore the relevance and use of data, revenue, budget and development partners, among other economic variables, in deepening and sustaining social development in the state.

A statement by the Director of Press Affairs to the state governor, Abdullahi Bego, said Governor Ibrahim Gaidam would deliver the retreat’s keynote address with the title: ‘A New Mandate for Change and Sustainable Development.’

Bego said the retreat would also receive a goodwill message from DFID SPARC’s National Programme Manager, Mr. Mark Walker.

He added that participants in the retreat would engage in intensive discussions and share experiences about the ongoing governance reforms in the state.

At least 10 papers would be presented and discussed both by Yobe government officials and DFID SPARC specialists and consultants.

A communique would be issued at the end of the retreat.
