The Chief Ombudsman, Fozia Amin, speaking at the good governance mobilization forum held in Jijjiga at the weekend, urged regional state administrators to address problems of good governance in order to ensure continued economic growth.
Ombudsman Amin emphasized a lot needed to be done to identify administrative gaps and foster improved good governance in states that needed special support despite encouraging economic growth.
The Deputy Chief Administrator of the Somali Regional State, Abdihakim lge, echoed these sentiments. He said in spite of encouraging results in areas of development, good governance, and democratization in past years, many regional states were far from ensuring good governance in all areas.
He praised the good governance mobilization forum for providing a platform where states could learn lessons and share experiences to contribute to an improved practice of good governance.
