Participation in some form or the other has been included as an
important element in development strategies of countries in
sub-Saharan Africa. Indeed, participation has become an essential
ingredient and a prerequisite of good governance. Participation is
also linked to poverty and social exclusion. This is because
participation supports efforts at self-help, which are meant to
eradicate poverty and encourages the growth of democratic
institutions, which creates political space for disadvantaged
groups, who were originally excluded from the decision-making
process.The absence of public participation has proved to be
damaging to good governance. By undermining accountability,
transparency, and encouraging corruption, it weakens the ability of
government to carry out its functions efficiently, including by
diluting equity from the provision of government services. It
creates feeling of being ignored; on belongingness; and negligence
on own affairs and on citizens-government relation.
