President Tinubu Set to Review Government Ministries, Departments, Agencies Performance for Q1 2024

President Bola Tinubu is poised to scrutinize the performance of various ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) of the Federal Government for the initial quarter of 2024. Sources within the presidency acquainted with the matter have revealed that this report will serve as the foundation for Tinubu’s assessment of his ministers’ effectiveness.

An insider disclosed the submission of an interim report on ministerial performance to the President, alongside ongoing preparations for the first-quarter assessment. However, dispelling rumors of impending ministerial dismissals, another source emphasized the unsubstantiated nature of such speculations.

Efforts to ascertain the timeline for delivering the Q1 report to the President via the Central Delivery Coordination Unit (CDCU) were futile, as communication with the unit remained unanswered. Despite earlier indications that January 2024 would signal the commencement of performance evaluations across ministries, details regarding the assessment process and its timeline remained undisclosed.

Under the stewardship of Mrs. Hadiza Bala-Usman, the CDCU has played a pivotal role in coordinating the evaluation process, soliciting input from citizens, industry experts, and the respective ministries. In line with this approach, at least 140 officials underwent training by the CDCU in January 2024 to oversee and assess MDA performance, drawing representation from all 35 federal ministries.

The assessment criteria, encompassing deliverables, key performance indicators (KPIs), and reporting mechanisms, have been under deliberation, incorporating input from ministers, permanent secretaries, and technical teams.

This process culminated in the development of 204 deliverables and 888 indicators outlined in the Citizens’ Delivery Tracker (CDT), unveiled by the Presidency in early April 2024.

Aligned with Tinubu’s administration’s eight priority areas, the CDT encompasses economic stability, infrastructure, social welfare, education, national security, agriculture, governance, and international relations.

Each priority area has been allocated specific deliverables and KPIs to guide performance assessments and ensure accountability.

Driven by the CDCU, the evaluation process aims to furnish quarterly assessments and annual scorecards to the President, underscoring transparency, efficiency, and effective service delivery across all government sectors. As the administration endeavors to position Nigeria as a global leader in development and peace, robust monitoring and evaluation mechanisms will remain indispensable in achieving established objectives.
