“The role of my office is to ensure that there is coordination across ministries, departments and agencies. We have effectively commenced our work,” Bala-Usman had said.

“We have also looked to see that while there are policy deployments across MDAs, there is also an understanding of the respective deliverables expected of the MDAs of government.

“We are looking to commence an assessment of the respective ministers in January 2024. We are going to have quarterly assessments of performance which will culminate in an annual scorecard.

“In addition to that, we are going to have a cabinet retreat in November with Mr. President. At the end, this would culminate in the performance bond that will be signed by each ministry.”
