Adamawa, USAID develop M&E framework to promote transparency, good governance

The Adamawa government says it has developed a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework to promote transparency, accountability and standard practices in governance.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the development is the sequel to a collaboration between the state government and United State Agency for International Development (USAID) through its funded State2state project.

Mr Ahmed Aliyu, a USAID Consultant, stated this at the end of a five-day workshop organised for M&E personnel, on Saturday in Yola.

He said the document would ensure transparency, accountability, effectiveness and respect for standard practices.

This, he said, would help people to get positive results from what the government is doing for the citizens in their respective communities.

Aliyu urged the participants to apply the concept of results-based management in their duties to enable the people to benefit from good governance.

Maryam Dikko, USAID Team Lead in Adamawa, urged the participants to apply the skills acquired in their work to achieve desired goals.

Also, Dr Mary Paninga, Chairperson of the Adamawa Planning Commission, lauded the Agency for the gesture, adding the document would assist the Commission to achieve its goals.

She said the adaptation of the document would enhance the monitoring of government projects across the state.

One of the participants, Yakubu Iliya, described the training as apt and timely, adding that “it is something that we need for a long period of time.

“We will do our best in applying the skills into practice to fast track successful implementation of state development plan”.

NAN reports that the participants were drawn from Adamawa Planning Commission, Bureau for Public Procurement, Ministries of Finance, Health, Education and Water Resources, State Universal Basic Education Board, Board of Internal Revenue and Primary Healthcare Development Agency.
