This paper starts by making a case for the measurement of governance. This is quickly followed by an identification of the major dilemmas and frustrations confronting such a project.Then go on to provide the various meanings of governance and discuss some of the current approaches to measuring it. A critique of these efforts is provided. The latter forms the basis for proposing a model of Governance Indicators Measures for African Smart States of the 21st Century. The suggested model emphasizes indicators, which involve state and society institutions, which are cost-effective and strategic and which are demand rather than supply driven.
