Photo Exhibition – Making Local Governance work for the Poor

In February 2009, the Orderly Society Trust began a nationwide survey on local governance in the six geo political zones in Nigeria. The purpose of the research is to examine the existing framework of local governments in Nigeria, identify challenges at the local level and capture examples of good local government practice.
Not only did OST capture data, they also captured the most riveting images of life in local governments in Nigeria. In tow with the research team were three ground breaking photographers: Jide Alakija, Edore Onomakpome and Seun Otolorin who brought back frozen moments of time from pockets of local governments across the country.
