FEC Adopts Orosanye’s Report, Reduce Governance

The Orosanye Report aimed at the reduction of the cost of governance has been approved for implementation by the Federal Executive Council (FEC), on Monday.

This was revealed by the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, while briefing State House correspondents at the end of the FEC meeting, presided over by President Bola Tinubu, at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The minister clarified that the report’s acceptance signifies the elimination of certain government departments, commissions, and agencies, the merger of others, the subsumption of some under others, and the relocation of others under new ministries where they should function more effectively.

Idris said “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 decided to implement the so-called Orosanye Report.

“Now, what that means is that a number of agencies, commissions, and some departments have been scrapped, some have been merged, 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.

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

Nonetheless, he clarified that employees of the impacted departments and agencies will not be laid off as a result of the report’s acceptance.
