Abstract: This is a pilot study which assessed the communication practices and strategies of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs). The study, through a survey, posed questions to find out the MMDAs sources of information on government policies and programmes and their assessment of the sources of information. The study also sought to find out the channels of communication the MMDAs use in their internal and external communication and their effectiveness; the barriers to effective communication in the Assemblies; and the information dissemination and communication needs of the MMDAs. Descriptive statistics was used to report the results and the outcomes of the study – to convey quantifiable data that reflect respondents’ knowledge, thoughts, opinions and attitudes to internal and external communication practices. The results show that largely, the District Coordinating Directors (DCDs) receive the information they require and the cordiality to do their work. But they also pointed out the need to improve communication links within the Assemblies and between the Assemblies and their numerous stakeholders and publics. Appropriate recommendations are made for consideration.
