President Goodluck Jonathan will on Wednesday, August 22 sign Performance Agreement Contract with all ministers with a view to measuring their performance and enhancing the quality of service delivery.
Information Minister Labaran Maku announced this in Abuja while signing the Performance Agreement Contract with the chief executives of agencies and parastatals under the ministry.
A statement by the ministry's spokesman Joseph Mutah yesterday said Maku noted that the initiative of the president was to ensure that henceforth governance is judged by quality of service delivery and not by financial input.
According to the minister, the National Planning Commission has developed Key Performance Indicators for ministries, departments and agencies, which will serve as guide in measuring their performance and output.
Speaking earlier, Director Human Resources of the ministry, Mallam Ahmed Sabo said the signing of the contract was in line with the transformation agenda of the government.
Responding on behalf of the chief executives of parastatals under the ministry, the Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria, Mallam Abubakar Jijiwa, said the signing of the contract symbolised a covenant they entered into with the minister and pledged their readiness to ensure the realisation of their respective Key Performance Indicators.
