This was said by the governor during his opening remarks at a two-day retreat held in Kaduna on Monday for members of the Jigawa State Executive Council and other key government officials.
He stated that in order to uphold its promise to improving the economic standing of its inhabitants, his administration would hold top officials accountable for the actions of their individual ministries, departments, and agencies.
According to him, “We are going to track the activities of the heads of the MDAs by defining specific milestones and performance indicators, emphasising the importance of real-time performance assessment, with support from partners like PERL-ARC.”
He noted that the partnership with development organisations such as FCDO, UNICEF, and Save the Children, has helped the state overcome some of it’s challenges.
Earlier, the representative of the FCDO, Abubakar Tijjani, reaffirmed their commitment to advancing the state’s 12-point agenda and pledged continued partnership with the Jigawa State Government.
