The Federal Government has said the failure of various ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) to work together causes the slow pace of service delivery and high cost of governance in the country.

Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, stated this yesterday during the second day’s session of the first year ministerial performance review retreat for ministers, permanent secretaries and top government officials at the State House Conference Centre in Abuja.


The SGF, who spoke of his reflections on ministerial performances, noted that ministers had reported that most of government’s plans had been negatively impacted by the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic as the execution of many projects had either slowed down or stalled all together.


Mustapha also noted that ministers repeatedly highlighted failure to release funds timely for the execution of projects, which he attributed to low revenue generation.

The SGF assured that President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration would continue to identify the various factors affecting the zeal of government to deliver on its promises and duties to Nigerians.

He listed some of the plans to mitigate the identified challenges.
