President Buhari has stated that he will attend all of the sessions to hear the overall evaluation of the administration’s performance over the last two years.
Remember that during previous reviews, the president only participated in the opening sessions and delegated authority to the assessors to preside over the remaining days of the process.
President Buhari may sack more ministers, will you be happy
All ministers and permanent secretaries were cautioned by the president in his speech yesterday to treat issues relating to the implementation of their mandates in the pursuit of the administration’s goals with the utmost importance.
The Minister of Agriculture, Mohammed Sabo Nanono, and his counterpart in the Ministry of Power, Saleh Mamman, were both fired by the president in September due to poor performance.
They were the first ministers to be dismissed by President Muhammadu Buhari since he took office in January 2015.
A statement issued by Buhari’s spokesperson, Femi Adesina, stated that the removal of Nanono and Mamman was in line with the “Tradition of subjecting our projects and programmes implementation to independent and critical self-review” through sector reporting during cabinet meetings and retreats, which he described as “unique in the world.”
According to insiders who spoke to the Daily Trust, Buhari’s statement was an indirect reference to a cabinet office review he commissioned with the mandate of assessing the overall performance of all ministries.
On October 1, there were expectations that the president would dismiss additional ministers, but this did not happen.

As part of the discussions about the best approach and strategies to implement planned policies, programmes, and projects that could diversify the economy away from its reliance on oil revenue while maintaining the current economic growth trajectory, President Buhari took part on Monday.
President Buhari stated that the goal of the assessment was to identify weak areas to improve the government’s ability to meet the expectations of Nigerians in the coming year.
“Two years and a few months into the second term, the tradition of subjecting our projects and programmes implementation to independent and critical self-review has taken firm roots through sector reporting during cabinet meetings and retreats,” he said. “Our projects and programmes implementation have been subjected to independent and critical self-review,” he added.
“The retreat was designed to review the performance of each minister in delivering the ministry mandates, including programmes and projects assigned to them upon their appointment in 2019,” the president said. “It was also designed to identify key impediments to implementation and re-strategize on how to expedite results delivery given the current economic situation.”
Moreover, he added, it provided an opportunity to effectively evaluate how the ministries had performed over the previous two years in terms of delivering on the promises made to Nigerian citizens.
As part of the retreat, President Buhari unveiled the Presidential Priorities and Performance Management System (PPPMS).
He claimed that the performance management system and dashboard, which had been in place since January of this year, had given him the ability to track projects in real-time with real-time data.
According to Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), the 878 contracts approved by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) were primarily for the provision of infrastructure aimed at facilitating faster economic growth and development in the country.
Mustapha stated that the primary focus of this mid-term ministerial retreat was to assess the current status of progress toward the completion of the nine priority areas identified during the previous year.
He explained that annual targets had been divided into quarterly intermediate targets at the output and outcome levels to establish an Early Warning System (EWS) and to address the issue of a lack of intermediate targets in the first place.
According to the SGF, his office will submit quarterly progress reports to the president on the implementation of ministerial mandates to keep him informed of the level of achievement of deliverables in comparison to set targets.
“It is anticipated that the outcome of the retreat will pave the way for the acceleration of the delivery of government policies, programmes, and projects over the next 19 months.”
The president’s legacy projects are “highly anticipated,” and “a great deal is expected of us as ministers, permanent secretaries, and heads of strategic government agencies,” he said.
