Executive Summary

Corporate Governance, (rules, regulations, legislations and principles) that help a firm

operate, has more or less been well defined and structured in the private sector;

however, corporate governance in the public services has recently been gaining

attention because of the scope and impact of public service delivery. Public

governance knowledge is important to ensure efficiency and quality of public service,

which determines the quality of life. Corporate governance is important for public

companies to scale up and for large ones to garner the interests of investors.


Because of the scope of service, the public sector faces a high risk of corruption,

fraudulent and unethical practices, dissatisfaction and lack of alignment of

employees, disagreements and lack of interests by managing committees, etc. Poor

corporate governance in the public sector could affect a state or organisation’s

credibility, integrity and, in turn, its financial health and stability.
