They however argue that Governance in its broad context goes beyond leadership and control of people and properties. Also, claims were made on the appearance of transparency in making organizational bodies visible; hence Gerry Stoker theoretical framework was established to furnish the subjects. They further opine that the barriers in Governance viz-a-viz accountability and transparency, and as such, the duo suggested robust principles to enhance better performance viz; public accountability, publicly understandable and acceptability and by extension a comprehensive strategies.
