Yobe Govt. Has Achieved 90 per cent OGP Implementation
Alhaji Musa Amshi, Executive Chairman, Bureau for Public Procurement and
Fiscal Responsibility Board, Yobe, on Tuesday, said the state
government had achieved 90 per cent implementation of Open Government
Amshi stated this in Damaturu while receiving OGP delegates who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
According to him, government has practically implemented 80 to 90 per cent OGP and has been transparent and accountable in its activities and decisions putting in place adequate mechanisms to justify its administrative actions.
“What remains now is an official implementation as the state government has already established Bureau for Public Procurement and Fiscal Responsibility Board,” he said.
The OGP Co-Chairman, Rajab Muhammed, said that the partnership had brought together government reformers and civil society organisation leaders to create action plans that make governments more inclusive, responsive and accountable.
Muhammed said that in the spirit of multi-stakeholder collaboration, OGP was overseen by a steering committee, including representatives of governments and civil society organisations.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that OGP was formally launched in September 2011for governments to become sustainable, transparent, accountable, and more responsive to their own citizens. (NAN)
