Former minister of education and the convener of bring back our girl movement, Oby Ezekwesili says without quality governance it was impossible for a country to develop.
She noted that the internet was a tool used to create the bases for wider participation, engage voices and demand for accountability.
“Without quality governance, it is impossible for a country to develop; the internet is an equaliser and a means of improving capacity,” she said.
“It is a tool to use to create the bases for wider participation, engage voices, demand for accountability and define how quickly we get to good governance.
“As growth and development happen, societies become stable and prosperous, the prosperity of society further thrives because as society grows, the citizens grow and this creates a basis for social cohesion.
“The internet has come to disrupt the monopoly of bad governance, and so the main issue is going to be getting the citizens to a place of information literacy
“Just getting the citizens to a place you have a right to know, you not only have a right to know, you have a voice to demand and the power to determine the quality of governance that is given to you.” she added
