CSO Set To Interface With Ministers, Heads Of MDAs On Scorecards

As the country gets set to witness the first year anniversary of President Bola Tinubu in office come May 29, 2024, the Coalition of Civil Society Groups in the country has concluded plans to interface with Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government (MDAs) on their scorecards in the last one year under the present administration.

Leader and coordinator of the Coalition, Amb. Dr. Emmanuel Nkweke, in a press statement made available to journalists in Abuja, the nation’s capital, said the Coalition has made assessment of the offices which were aimed at strengthening the institution of governance in the country.

He said the scorecard is based on a comprehensive assessment it carried out since the appointment of Ministers last year and will be presented to Nigerians come June 9, 2024.

The statement called on the ministers to ensure that they keep their doors open to the visitation of the civil society groups because they are important in strengthening democracy and governance in the country.

Amb. Nkweke also decried the performance of some appointees whom he said have not been able to prove themselves as Ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Since the appointment of Ministers last year by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, we the members of the civil society groups began to monitor their performance and it will interest the general public to know that we have done our works as watchdogs of the society. While some of them are doing great, some others have proven to be mere spectators. Our findings should not be seen as a witchhunt but a true reflection of their performance and it is our expectation that they will pick up and put in more efforts by following our recommendations,” the statement added.


The timetable of the visitation of the ministries that have been identified to have performed well within the one year of President Tinubu are as follows:

Day One – Friday, May 17, 2024: NDDC

Day Two – Monday, May 20, 2024: Ministry of Works, Ministry of Women Affairs and EFCC.

Day Three – Wednesday, May 22, 2024: Ministry of Communication and Digital Economy, Ministry of Aviation and NITDA.

Day Four – Friday, May 24, 2024: Ministry of Federal Capital Territory (MFCT), Ministries of Works and Interior.

Day Five – Monday, May 27, 2024: Ministry of Finance, CBN, Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS).
