Following the signing of performance bond by the various Departments and agencies in the marine and blue economy sector, the Managing Director of the Nigerian Ports Authority, NPA, Mohammed Bello-Koko has tasked the staff of the authority on the actualization of the Key Performance Indicators, KPIs spelt out in the performance bond.
Speaking at the NPA In-House Cascading Of Deliverables Arising From The Presidential/Ministerial Performance Bond December 2023 recently, Bello-Koko charged the authority’s staff to ensure to deliver on the targets set in the bond to justify their earnings as public servants.
He disclosed that every Unit, Section, Department, Division and Directorate has a role to play in fulfilling the Authority’s targets and just as performers will be identified and rewarded, underperformers will be found out and sanctioned.
“I am greatly delighted to welcome you to this very crucial meeting of minds which I believe holds the aces to the actualization of the very audacious but achievable targets enshrined in the ministerial performance bond we signed a couple of weeks ago, and which we are duty bound to deliver upon in justification of our earnings and position as public servants.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the ministerial bond that has set out the Key Performance Indicators, KPIs by which we will be adjudged as an Authority is in itself a derivative of a performance bond which the Honourable Minister of Marine and Blue Economy had earlier signed with His Excellency Mr. President.
“Given the result orientation of the current administration, this retreat which has been put together at great cost to equip you with the understanding and clarity of purpose necessary for result delivery is, therefore, one that requires maximum seriousness and concentration, as there would be zero tolerance for underperformance going forward.
“As you will find out from the elucidations of our resource persons, every Unit, Section, Department, Division and Directorate has a role to play in fulfilling the Authority’s targets and just as performers will be identified and rewarded, underperformers will be found out and sanctioned”, he said.
Speaking on, Bello-Koko disclosed that there are strict timelines attached to every performance indicator, so formulating performance strategies that cannot be implemented in quick time will be tantamount to an exercise in futility.
“Arising from this retreat, Management expects specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound input, output and outcomes that will stand us out as pacesetters in the comity of federal government agencies.
“Let me seize this moment to reiterate this Management team’s commitment to providing you with all the enabling requirements without any delay whatsoever.
“I am persuaded without any scintilla of doubt that if we activate our can-do spirit in addition to our knowledge, skills and experiences garnered over the years, we would not only meet but exceed expectations and make our dear nation a better place for us all”, he added.
