Kaduna and Sokoto states governors, Nasir el-Rufai and Aminu Tambuwal were named the best performing governors for the month of October while governors of Kogi, Yobe, Ebonyi, Zamfara and Akwa Ibom are Nigeria’s worst performing states governors for the same month.
The study tagged CIAPS Governors Performance Index (CGPI) is a monthly review of the activities of all the state governors in Nigeria.
CGPI coordinator, Olumuyiwa Ayoola explained that the variables used as indexes for performance were mathematically calculated and October’s variables have been skewed to place emphasis on “Payment of Salary, New Projects, Education, Security and Leadership by example”.
Ayoola further explained that the action of each state governor was monitored and studied from their first day of the month and the findings were graded and compared to that of fellow governors across the country.
Weighing-in on the study, the CIAPS Director and the CGPI Chair, Prof. Anthony Kila, said: CGPI is a useful tool for democracy and good governance as it allows government to be objectively measured against their peers and compels all in power to be mindful of accountability.
