Oronsaye Report: Full List of Agencies to be scrapped, merged, relocated

The Executive Council of the Federation, also known as the Federal Executive Council (FEC) on Monday approved the implementation of the recommendations of the Steve Oronsaye panel on the restructuring and rationalisation of Federal agencies, parastatals and commissions.

The government said the implementation of the policy involves the merging, subsuming and scrapping of agencies with similar functions.

Bayo Onanuga, the special adviser on information and strategy to President Bola Tinubu said the measure became necessary to enhance efficiency in the federal service, and reduce the cost of governance.

“The Oronsaye report was submitted in 2012 to the Goodluck Jonathan administration,” Mr Onanuga said in a statement. “In 2014, the Jonathan government released a white paper on the report. The Buhari administration after re-examining the white paper also released a second white paper in August 2022, but did not implement the report.

“However, the Tinubu administration has decided to confront the monster of high governance cost by implementing elements of the report.

“An eight-man committee has a 12-week deadline to ensure that the necessary legislative amendments and administrative restructuring needed to implement the reforms are effected in an efficient manner.

“The committee comprises Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Head of the Civil Service, Attorney General and Justice Minister, Budget and Planning Minister, DG Bureau of Public Service Reform, Special Adviser to the President on Policy Coordination, Special assistant to the president on National Assembly. The Cabinet Affairs Office will serve as the secretariat.”

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Print Media, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, later shared a full list of the agencies to be affected with Sources.
