Nigeria's minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development, Sadiya Farouq, has been ranked best-performing minister in the first year of President Muhammadu Buhari's second term.  

In an interim scorecard released by Transparency Watch, the minister's counterparts in the ministries of transportation and youths, sports and development, Rotimi Amaechi and Sunday Dare came second and third respectively.

The report signed by the organisation's president, Maxwell Gowon, on Sunday, August 23, said the ministers were graded based on organizational strength, the performance of the agencies under the purview, the impact on the lives of the people as well as transparency and accountability. 

In the assessment of organizational strength, of all the ministries reviewed, the report said Farouq scored first with a score of nine out of 10 points.

According to the report, the minister's score is due to the ministry's effective organization of the various interventions programs of President Buhari'-led administration.

The report highlighted that some of the interventions were carried out through the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the national N-power initiative, National Home Grown School Feeding Programme, and the Conditional Cash Transfer Programme.

An assessment of the federal ministry of transport shows that Rotimi Amaechi had a score of seven out of 10.

Amaechi, the report said was graded on the ministry's efforts in sustaining the rail constructions across Nigeria.

For the minister of youth and sports development, Sunday Dare, the ministry's implementation of youth-oriented programmes across the country, especially at the grassroots level was rated successful.

Meanwhile, previously reported that Farouq had received a commendation for her administrative skills display at the ministry of humanitarian affairs and disaster management since assuming office.

The minister was rated high on supervision and transparency in the administration of aids to the poorest of Nigerians since the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic.

The Coalition for Good Governance (CGG) said Farouq's handling of management of emergency issues and the N-power scheme is unprecedented.
