Agencies Scrapped Some, Submerged While Others Subsumed As President Tinubu Orders Full Implementation Of Oronsaye Report

President Bola Tinubu has ordered the full implementation of the Oronsaye report.⁣ The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, announced this while speaking to State House correspondents after the Federal Executive Council meeting at the Aso Rock Villa, Abujatoday February 26.

The Minister 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”

President Tinubu has also ordered that the full report be implemented within 12 weeks.

Submitted in 2012, the Oronsaye report on public sector reforms revealed that there are 541 — statutory and non-statutory —Federal Government parastatals, commissions, and agencies.⁣ The 800-page report recommended that 263 of the statutory agencies be slashed to 161; 38 agencies be scrapped; 52 be merged and 14 be reverted to departments in various ministries.⁣

The report also recommends that the law establishing the National Salaries and Wages Commission be repealed and its functions taken over by the Revenue Mobilization and Fiscal Responsibility Commission.⁣ It advised the FG to merge the nation’s top three anti-corruption agencies—the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission and the Code of Conduct Bureau.⁣
