Tinub orders full implementation of Orosanye Report

Must read

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has ordered the full implementation of the Steve Orosanye report.

The decision was reached at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting Monday.

The Orosanye’s Report suggests ways of cutting cost of governance which many say has been hampering Nigeria’s economic potentials.

Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, disclosed this to journalists during a media briefing after the FEC meeting, which was presided over by President Bola Tinubu.
According to Idris, the adoption of the report means that some agencies, commissions and departments of government would be scrapped, some merged, some subsumed under some others and others moved under new ministries where they are supposed to perform better.

“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 Nigerians, has taken a decision to implement the so called Orosanye Report.
Now, what that means is that a number of agencies, commissions, and some departments have actually been scrapped, some have been merged, while others have been subsumed. Others, of course, have also been moved from some ministries to others where government feels they will operate better.

“Like I said, this is a very far-reaching decision. It is aimed, one, to fine-tune or to restructure government operations as a whole. Secondly, it’s in line also with decision of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to reduce the cost of governance”, he said.

He, however, explained that the adoption of the report did not mean people working in the affected agencies and departments will lose their jobs.
