Nigeria Launches Citizens’ Delivery Tracker to Monitor Government Performance

In a bid to enhance accountability and transparency in governance, the Nigerian Presidency has launched the Citizens’ Delivery Tracker (CDT), aimed at evaluating the performance of government ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs). The CDT comprises a comprehensive matrix of 204 deliverables and 888 indicators spanning the years 2024 to 2027.

The tracker aims to provide a robust feedback mechanism between citizens and the government, holding ministers and heads of government agencies accountable for delivering on key priorities set by President Bola Tinubu’s administration. These priorities include economic stability, infrastructure development, social welfare, and education.

Each MDA is assigned specific deliverables and key performance indicators (KPIs) aligned with the administration’s priority areas. For example, ministries tasked with economic reform are expected to achieve objectives such as increasing the Tax-to-GDP ratio and boosting internally generated revenue (IGR). Similarly, MDAs responsible for security and energy sectors have been assigned specific targets to meet.

The development of deliverables and KPIs involved bilateral meetings between the Central Coordination Delivery Unit and ministers, permanent secretaries, and their technical teams. These parameters will guide quarterly assessments and annual scorecards presented to the President, ensuring accountability and performance management.

The CDT serves as a one-click portal for President Tinubu to monitor ministers’ performance in real-time from his office, emphasizing the government’s commitment to citizen engagement and transparency. Senior government officials have highlighted the importance of citizen participation in monitoring and evaluating government performance, signaling a shift towards inclusive governance.
