FG Activates App for Citizens to Track Ministers’ Performance

A Delivery Tracker App, which will enable all citizens to view the deliverables and key performance indicators for all ministries and give their assessment on the performance of each of the indicators, was on Monday activated.

The Special Adviser to the President on Policy Coordination and head of the Central Delivery Coordination Unit (CDCU), Hadiza Bala Usman, who launched the app at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, explained that the need for the app to go live is in line with President Bola Tinubu’s desire to ensure that citizens are an integral part of the monitoring and performance management process of the government.

According to her, the app, which can be accessed at app.cdcu.gov.ng emphasizes President Tinubu’s commitment to ensuring accountability and transparency.

She maintained that the app would t5enable Nigerians to have access to the deliverables of all ministers, thereby acknowledging the citizens as integral stakeholders in monitoring and evaluating the government’s performance.

She said that the presidential priority areas included reforming the economy to deliver sustained and inclusive growth, and strengthening national security for peace and prosperity.

Boosting agriculture to achieve food security, and unlocking energy and natural resources for sustainable development.

Others are enhancing infrastructure and transportation as enablers for growth, focusing on education, health, and social investment as essential pillars of development, accelerating diversification through industrialisation, digitisation, creative arts, manufacturing, and innovation, and improving governance for effective service delivery.

She added: “For each of these priority areas, we agreed on specific deliverables and developed Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), which formed the basis for the Performance Bond which all Ministers and Permanent Secretaries signed with the President in November 2023. “These parameters will guide the Quarterly Assessments and Annual Scorecards, which the CDCU is mandated to present to the President.”
