    The Federal Government has commenced the process of E-monitoring of projects across the country.

    According to the Minister of state Budget and National planning, Prince Clem Agba, EYEMARK Application will ensure transparent execution and timely delivery of government projects.

    Prince Clem Ikanade Agba said that the introduction of the EYEMARK monitoring app was to ensure government projects were transparently executed and timely delivered through effective monitoring and evaluation of activities by contractors.

    At a sensitization workshop for MDAs in Abuja, Prince Agba said the ministry developed the web application, using geo-spatial technology, to support the tracking of various capital projects by citizen/citizen groups towards ensuring value for money.

    He, however, said since the official launch of the App in March 31, 2022 traffic on the site had been low as only few Nigerians were aware of it and had done one review or another of the capital projects posted.

    “The objective of the Workshop, therefore, is to educate and enlighten the MDAs and Civil society organisations on the provision of relevant implementation progress of their projects and programmes to be uploaded by the eyemark application. The dialogue will also sensitise the MDAs on how to review comments and observations made by the citizens and provide relevant feedback.” The Minister noted.

    He said that the development of the eyemark website was a demonstration by the present administration to build a better Nigeria.

    He maintained that transparency and accountability were ensured through their involvement in governance through the use of the application.

    “Through the application, Ministries and agencies are required to upload all relevant information on implementation progress of their programmes and projects to enable citizens review and make comments on projects implemented within their localities”. he noted.

    Director of National Monitoring and Evaluation of the Ministry of Finance, Budget and national planning, Dr Zakari Lawal, said the inability of government to monitor all projects was due to limited staff hence, the application. (radio Nigeria)
