“You may recall President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s promise at the cabinet retreat for ministers, presidential aides, permanent secretaries and top government functionaries held in November 2023, that the federal government will strengthen the Central Delivery Coordination Unit (CDCU) and ensure that citizens are an integral part of the monitoring and performance management process of the government,” Bala-Usman said.

“I am pleased to inform you that this promise has been delivered as the upgraded Citizens’ Delivery Tracker App, which will enable all citizens to view the deliverables and key performance indicators for all ministries and give their own assessment on the performance of each of the indicators, goes live today.
