The study tagged CIAPS Governors’ Performance Index (CGPI) is a monthly performance review of what Governors across the country are doing in their offices and it is conducted by the Lagos based Centre for International Advanced and Professional Studies (CIAPS).

In a statement released by the Centre, the CGPI coordinator, Mr Olumuyiwa Ayoola explained that the variables used as indexes for performance were mathematically calculated and this end of the year’s variables included “Payment of Salary, Infrastructure & Health, Education, Security and Business Opportunity and Employment”

. According to Mr Olumuyiwa Ayoola, the action of each state governor was monitored and studied from their first day in office and the findings were graded and compared to that of fellow governors across the country.

Over the past year, CGPI results show that Kaduna state performed more than any other state to create jobs and encourage business investments. Lagos state has done more than anyone other State for security and infrastructure.

Sokoto, Kaduna and Imo States were commended for their efforts on education.

The Governors of Adamawa and Bayelsa States continue to remain at the bottom of the list as all finished in the bottom places with not more than a score of 39%.

Commenting on the CGPI report, CIAPS Centre Director and CGPI Chair, Prof Anthony Kila stated that the “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 after one year in office factors the limited powers of State Governors as well as what they can do.
