The administration of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State is committed to providing excellent, process-driven and results-oriented governance to the people of the state.
Disclosing this at the 2023 Delta State Executive Council retreat on “Implementing MORE for Delta Development: Strategies Enabling Factors held at the Maryam Babangida Leisure Park in Asaba on Friday, Oborevwori stated that the trip was necessary to ensure that government ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) align their programs and activities with the administration’s policy objectives.
According to him, the strategic imperatives of the MORE program have been reduced to results that can be measured, tracked and reported.
“These key performance indicators will enable us to measure our progress as an administration against established timelines and success criteria.
“This, in turn, will enable governance efficiency, improve governance outcomes, hold MDAs accountable and promote wise use of resources.
“I strongly expect that this forum will enable us to deliver on the promises of MORE through fiscal responsibility, synergy among MDAs, strong community engagement, effective public communication, creative program implementation and excellent service delivery,” he said.
Governor Oborevwori noted that a key element of his administration’s policy brief is to ensure a credible feedback mechanism, adding: “For us to achieve our goals, MDAs must continually monitor the progress of projects under their jurisdiction and develop a feedback and evaluation mechanism.
He said: “As the projects we have completed and initiated to date demonstrate, this administration is process-oriented, results-oriented and committed to excellence.
“We are indeed ready to lead the state into an era that accelerates the realization of its full potential through the MORE program.
“For this purpose, the commissioners are expected to sign a performance bond at the end of the retreat. This is not intended to scare anyone. This is intended to serve as motivation to focus on the agreed outcomes.”
“As I stated in my opening speech, MORE aims to support inclusive and sustainable economic growth and create private sector jobs, strengthen human capital, build enabling infrastructure, strengthen public financial management, and improve governance and accountability systems to improve service delivery .
“The problems we face are simple: they concern improving the quality of life of our citizens, building bridges of social cohesion, giving our citizens hope for a better tomorrow and accelerated development.
“To successfully achieve this goal requires thought and action from me and all those who have the privilege of serving as elected officials, political appointees or public servants.”
The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, said in his keynote address titled “An Innovative Approach to Building a State that Works for the Citizens (Opportunities, Challenges and Prospects for the Development of the Delta State Economy) that the pandemic of three years ago caused global inflation to reach the highest level in history .
He said that since the Covid-19 era, there has been a significant increase in the use of technology and artificial intelligence in carrying out various activities, stressing that the impact on developing countries like Nigeria is alarming, and warning that local governments and local governments must work assiduously, to serve people.
The Edo State Governor has said that plans are underway to buy back the state’s shares in the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC), stressing that talks are ongoing between Delta, Edo, Ekiti and Ondo States to buy back shares.
Earlier, welcoming the participants, the Deputy Governor of the state, Sir Monday Onyeme, thanked the governor for organizing the retreat, saying it would give participants an insight into the philosophy and clear vision of the program.
The lieutenant governor said there is a new sheriff in town whose agenda is focused on reshaping management tools for greater efficiency, summing up his agenda and urging participants to do things differently.
Secretary to the State Government, Dr Kingsley Emu, who detailed the More Agenda, provided an overview of the More Agenda thematic areas and specific areas to be addressed.
