FG Introduces Technologies For Project Tracking, Supervision

TECH DIGEST- The Nigerian government has made another brave move by implementing surveillance and monitoring technologies on initiatives being carried out by those holding public office. It formally unveiled the websites for the Central Delivery Coordinating Unit (CDCU) and Presidential Delivery Tracks (PDT) on Tuesday.

The platforms can be used as downloaded smartphone apps that track, evaluate, and periodically report on the actions taken by MDAs, ministers, permanent secretaries, and other officials as they carry out the ministerial responsibilities Nigerians have given them. Citizens have the chance to provide immediate comment on the execution of projects aimed at fostering public accountability.

The PDT and CDCU platforms, according to Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha, were introduced in 2019 in order to advance the nine priority objectives of President Muhammadu Buhari’s government. The program, he continued, is anticipated to improve ministerial mandate delivery in support of the accomplishment of federal government goals.

“The goal of the PDT/CDCU is to promote transparency and expand access to reporting on presidential priority policies, programs, and projects.

“This is by incorporating citizens as the third layer of reporting to offer vital information that will facilitate effective service delivery.

Over the last two years, the PDT/CDCU had successfully driven the Federal Government’s delivery initiative to incorporate a systematic feedback mechanism from the citizens into the design and operationalization of its Performance Management System.

“This is in recognition of the critical roles of the citizens in promoting inclusive and citizen-centered governance,” Mustapha said.

The SGF emphasized that the creation of public websites was done so that citizens could provide updates and feedback on public initiatives.

“The CDCU seeks to enable residents to make their opinions known, establish a successful program for citizen engagement, and participation that improves advantages if discussed with the people,” he stated.
