President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the secretary the government of the federation (SGF) to continue with quarterly review process and assessment of ministries for the third and fourth quarters of 2023, saying the reports will form part of the transition documents of his administration to the incoming government. The directive was given on Tuesday at a closing ceremony of the 2022 Ministerial Performance Review Retreat, preceded by his Coordination and Implementation of Presidential Priorities.
The directive was given to all ministers and permanent secretaries, to ensure that the performance reports of their ministries are submitted on a quarterly basis to the office of the SGF for review by the Central Delivery Coordination Unit to achieve the objectives, where the outcome of the reviews will be made available for the president’s consideration. He admonished the ministers, permanent secretaries and heads of government agencies not to abandon the business of governance for electioneering, saying “any infraction will be viewed seriously. Our collective goal is to map out a transition plan for the policies, programmes and projects of government with an up-to-date status of Implementation.”
