Mr Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), has described the last two years of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration as productive and remarkable.
Mustapha, who spoke during the opening ceremony of the Mid-Term Ministerial Performance Review Retreat on Monday, said the last two years of the Buhari-led administration have been most productive.
“During this 2nd term of Mr President from May 29, 2019, to Aug. 31, the Federal Executive Council held 52 Meetings and granted 579 Approvals comprising of 381 Contracts, 110 Policies, and 88 Briefs/Notes.
“From the above, the 878 Contracts approved by FEC have mostly targeted the provision of infrastructure, geared towards enabling faster economic growth and development,” he explained
The SGF also said the present administration remained focused on its cardinal responsibility of responsively addressing the myriads of needs and challenges of its citizens through the 319 approved policies initiated during the period.
“I am glad to say that with the introduction of the Ministerial Mandates by the President, there is greater clarity of expectations of MDAs on deliverables of government priorities to achieve demonstrable results.
“Today, there are embedded systems for performance management and improved accountability and transparency for the delivery of services to citizens.
“The key focus of this Mid-Term ministerial retreat is to review the status of progress towards the delivery of the nine priority areas,” NAN quoted him as saying.
