Abstract: Stakeholders in construction projects play important roles which need much emphasis. The high failure rate of major projects has been attributed to lack of attention to stakeholders. Thus, specific aim of this study was to examine the perception of stakeholders on success of construction projects in the District Assembly. With this aim, various objectives were set which included the identification of common stakeholders in a construction project at the District Assembly level, the identification of the key success criteria and the identification of the stakeholders’ perception of construction projects success in the district assembly as well as the challenges hindering the achievement of the success criteria. In order to achieve these objectives, the research adopted the use of review of literature and questionnaire survey which was designed for respondents to indicate their views on construction project success as well the challenges. It was revealed that, Internal Stakeholders of the District who have higher stakes when it comes to construction project success classified construction cost performance as the main indicator for determining the success of every project whilst External Stakeholders who are the eventual end users of the project critically considered the quality performance criterion. Interestingly, cost performance criterion was ranked 1st amongst all by both categories of respondents. The research discovered several challenges hindering the achievement of the construction projects success of which 61.81% of the respondents indicated that the revealed challenges really and actually affected the project delivery success. The recommendation made was that leaders of project teams (project manager) must make it a priority to identify the stakeholders in the project, determine and understand their necessities and perceptions of project success and try to meet those needs. Moreover, all relevant stakeholders at the District Assembly level should be well informed and be involved in the planning and implementation of construction projects to ensure its success.
