1.1    Background to the Study
    The concept of good governance is highly sought after phenomenon in developing countries, including Nigeria because of the benefits associated with it. Good governance is central to the social, economic and political development of any nations. It promotes the rule of law, transparency and accountability in the conduct of public affairs and facilitates the process of a country’s quest to better the life of its citizenry and improve their general wellbeing.
    However, the term good governance does not apply to other corporate bodies in private sector. Good governance as a term which refers to the manner in which public institutions conduct public affairs and manage public resources, emerged to serve as a model to compare ineffective economies of political bodies. Good governance centers on the responsibility of governmental bodies to meet the needs of the masses rather than that of a select groups in the society. Good governance therefore, promotes service delivery to the citizenry of a country.
Service delivery by government and governing bodies can be made effective and efficient through proper deployment of the amiable resources to the various sectors of the economy to impact on the masses who are expected to be the beneficiary of government service delivery system. The many areas of service delivery includes; health care, education, water supply, electricity, transport and communication, agriculture, housing among other social infrastructure.

The health sector in Nigeria has witnessed a number of policies and programmers put in place by the government at various levels, but the impacts of these health policies and programmers are still low, especially on the poor segment of the population. This low impact is as a result of lack of proper implementation of   the policies and programme which is in turn caused by lack of good governance in the country.
