Tinubu directs Wike, Keyamo, 45 other ministers to showcase scorecard

President Bola Tinubu has directed his ministers to present their performance reports to Nigerians as part of activities to commemoration of his first anniversary in office.

The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, while announcing this at a press briefing in Abuja on Wednesday.

The minister said the low-key first-anniversary celebration would be marked with sectoral media briefings by the 47 federal ministers starting on Thursday, May 23.

Idris was joined at the media press conference by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, and the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Abubakar Bagudu.

While speaking on AriseTV in April, the President’s Special Adviser on Policy Coordination, Hadiza Bala-Usman, who heads the Central Delivery Coordination Unit (CDCU), affirmed that the unit had received performance reports from at least 20 of the 35 ministries.

She explained that the assessment report would be a product of a joint effort of the ministers, citizens and industry experts.

Bala-Usman said: “Our submission is for the first quarter. So, the first quarter has just ended, and we have initiated the assessment process. The ministers have all been asked to submit their performance based on the deliverables.”

She asserted ministers would be assessed “Based on what is out there in the public space. They would write to say, ‘Based on every deliverable you have given me, this is what I’ve done within the first quarter of the year.’

“Through the Citizens Delivery Tracker app, Nigerians will also say, ‘this is what we’ve seen the minister do’ and they would aggregate it.”

Recall that at the opening of a three-day cabinet retreat for ministers, presidential aides, permanent secretaries and top government functionaries on November 1, 2023, the President said the ministers in his cabinet would only retain their offices based on performance, which would be reviewed quarterly.

“If you are performing, nothing to fear. If you miss the objective, we’ll review it. If no performance, you leave us. No one is an island and the buck stops on my desk,” Tinubu said.
