The agency has been monitoring the implementation of the 17 adopted NEC Resolutions, and physical verification of projects embarked on by Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of government, towards accelerated socio-economic and political developments through strong inter-governmental partnerships.

The leader of the delegation, who is an Assistant Director in the Federal Ministry of Budget and National Planning, Mr. Bala Giade who spoke with newsmen in Iperu-Remo, after rounding off the field assessment visit to infrastructural development sites embarked upon by the MDAs of government, said the tour of projects in Ogun State was in tandem with the Muhammadu Buhari administration's drive for continuous evaluation towards an effective feedback mechanism.
