President Muhammadu Buhari has declared open a two-day mid-term ministerial performance review retreat in Abuja.
The retreat, which is being attended by Ministers, Permanent Secretaries and other top government officials, was declared open by the president on Monday in Abuja.
The ministerial performance review retreat is an annual event convened to assess the performances of top functionaries of the administration.
This is coming amid rumors of likely ‘sack’ of some more of Buhari’s Ministers for poor performance.
Recall that during the weekly Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on September 1, 2021, President Buhari announced the sack of two of his Ministers; Minister of Power, Engr. Saleh Mamman, and Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Sabo Nanono.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the ongoing performance review retreat at the State House Conference Hall, the President said he would stay throughout the two-day event to listen to all cumulative assessments over the last two years and some months.
He said, “Two years and some months into the second term, the tradition of subjecting our projects and programs implementation to independent and critical self-review has taken firm roots through sector Reporting during Cabinet meetings and at Retreats.”
Buhari explained that the idea of the assessment is to identify weak areas with a view to strengthening the ability of government to deliver the goods to the people.
