The Federal Government has come out to reiterate its commitment to promoting transparency in governance.

The Minister of State for Finance, Budget and National Planning (FMFBNP), Mr Clement Agba, recently revealed this in Abuja at a one-day interactive forum with development partners and international NGOs.

According to him, stakeholders should try to key into the ministry’s yearly Development Corporation Report (DCR) aimed at increasing transparency.

He added that the DCR will focus on boosting transparency towards the enhancement of mutual accountability and aid effectiveness in Nigeria.

His words, “In addition, as part of efforts to address the information gap and data needs of various stakeholders, the ministry has particularly deployed the Development Assistant Database (DAD) platform.

“The platform is a publicly accessible online single portal that maintains all aid-related information.

“The DCR is an invaluable product of the DAD and I urge you all to key into the DAD platform to ensure proper coordination, transparency and accountability in aid administration in the country.”

“This interactive forum is significant and it is coming at a time Nigeria is finalising the implementation of the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP), 2017-2020.

“While the National Economic Sustainability Plan (NESP) has been developed to serve as a “Transit” plan between the ERGP and a successor plan which is currently in its preparatory stage.

“The design and implementation of the NESP is predicated on the promotion of some basic target areas that include; local content and self-reliance, economic stimulation, job preservation/creation and Pro-poor growth.”
