President Muhammadu Buhari has set up a committee to assess the level of implementation of all policies, programmes and projects of his administration.
Today’s Echo gathers that president Buhari has put Vice President Osinbajo in charge of the new committee.
In a statement available to news men, president Buhari said:
“I have approved the establishment of a Committee, chaired by the Vice President, to assess the level of implementation of all our administration’s Policies, Programmes & Projects – whether inherited, or started by us – and to help prepare us for governance over the next 4 years.”
The Committee is made up of senior government officials, including the Chief of Staff and Deputy Chief to the President (Secretary of the Committee), and a number of Cabinet Ministers. They will work with Ministries, Departments and Agencies, as well as with outside experts.
According to the president, one of the main duties of this Committee will be to produce a comprehensive document that will guide the incoming Cabinet, and enable government to continue the implementation of the vision of the Party and the administration, for Nigeria; while also highlighting lessons from the last 4 years.
“I am confident that the Committee will deliver a detailed Implementation Plan for the Next Level. I also look forward to working with all stakeholders to deliver maximum benefit to Nigeria; and especially to working with the 9th National Assembly to improve the budget process.”
Buhari announced the formation of this committee shortly after meeting two leaders of the APC from the South-West; former governor of Osun State; Bisi Akande and National leader of the party; Bola Tinubu.
