There can be multiple reasons for the issue. One of the reasons could be that the Approver is none other than the same Employee however it is supposed to be the Person who is Responsible for the Project.

This is expected system behavior. Change the Approver and this will send the Approval Task to the respective manager. After the approval, the Status will change accordingly.
