JUST IN: President Tinubu directs full implementation of Oronsaye report

President Bola Tinubu has directed the full implementation of the Oronsaye report.

This was announced by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, after Monday’s Federal Executive Council meeting at the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja. ⁣

He said “So in a very bold move today, this administration, under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, consistent again with his courage to take very far-reaching decisions in the interest of Nigeria, has taken a decision to implement the so-called Oronsaye Report.⁣

“Now, what that means is that a number of agencies, commissions, and some departments have actually been scrapped. Some have been modified, and marked while others have been subsumed. Others, of course, have also been moved from some ministries to others where the government feels they will operate better.” ⁣

In November 2011, the Federal Government of Nigeria established the Presidential Committee on the restructuring and rationalisation of Federal Government Parastatals, Commissions and Agencies headed by Mr. Stephen Oronsaye to create a roadmap for repositioning the federal civil service to make it more productive.

The outcome of the Committee’s work was an 800-page report popularly known as the Oronsaye Report released in April 2012 which emphasized the reduction of the cost of governance by eliminating the duplication of functions by several departments and agencies.

According to the report, “There are 541 government parastatals, commissions and agencies in the country,” with overlapping or duplicated functions.

It recommended that 263 of the statutory agencies should be reduced to 161; 38 agencies should be abolished; 52 be merged, and 14 others should revert to being departments in their relevant ministries.

In total, it recommended the merger or outright abolition of 102 Federal Agencies.
