The 5 Worst Performing Governors in the Country-Report

0

Governors Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), Idris Wada (Kogi), Ibrahim Geidam (Yobe) and Dave Umahi (Ebonyi) have been rated as the worst performing among the 36 state governors in the country.

The governors of Kaduna (Nasir El-Rufai) and Sokoto (Aminu Tambuwal) States were rated as the first and second best performing governors with 72 per cent 64 per cent respectively.

This is according to a comparative analysis of governors performance in Nigeria carried out by Lagos-based Centre for International Advanced and Professional Studies.

The study, tagged: Governors Performance Index, is a monthly performance review of what governors across the country are doing in their offices and it is conducted by Lagos-based CIAPS.

In a statement issued on Friday by the centres Coordinator, Olumuyiwa Ayoola, the report noted that the variables used as indexes for performance were mathematically calculated.

Ayoola stated that the variables had been skewed to place emphasis on payment of salary, new projects, education, security and leadership by example.

According to him, activities of each state governor were monitored and studied from their first day in office and the findings were graded and compared to that of fellow governors across the country.

The statement pointed out that in October, the CGPI results showed that Emmanuel, Yari, Wada, Geidam and Umahi were the least performing governors in the country.

The CGPI report indicated that the five governors finished in the bottom places with not more than a score of 35 per cent.

Commenting 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.

The variables used for measuring governors performance this month (October) takes into account that most of the state governors are new to office while some have been there for a longer period of time.

Kila said he hoped that the CGPI monthly reports would allow governors to sit up, improve their performances during their tenure and engage in healthy competition among themselves for the benefit of their states and the country as a whole.
