Nigerians will soon begin to monitor the development of projects across the country according to the Federal Government.
Yesterday, the Federal Government revealed plans that it’s currently designing and developing a web app that will enable Nigerians to monitor the progress of projects in the country.
The plans were made known by the Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Clem Agba, in Abuja.
The minister noted that citizens’ participation in governance and tracking service delivery of projects in their communities is now a major concern for the government.
The minister said: “The Budget and National Planning arm of the ministry is working on a Web App – the Eye Mark – that will assist citizens to ‘eye mark’ and report on government’s projects and programmes ‘earmarked’ for their communities.”
Agba, added that “The app is about 90 per cent developed and the government requires the active participation in the process of tying budget provisions to projects and getting time value of money earmarked for capital projects as governance is a collective responsibility by all citizens.”
Once the app is completed and launched, Nigerians will be able to track and monitor the progress of capital projects taking place in their respective communities.
