The Federal Government, on Thursday, inaugurated a committee for the implementation of the Oronsaye Report, which majorly recommends the merger of the government’s ministries, departments, and agencies to cut the cost of governance.

The inauguration of the implementation committee followed the announcement by the President Bola Tinubu-led Federal Government on February 28, 2024, that parts of the recommendations in the 12-year-old Oronsaye report would be implemented.

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, among others.

A statement on Thursday by the Director of Information, Office of the Secretary General of the Federation, Segun Imohiosen, said the SGF George Akume, inaugurated “the Committee on the Implementation of the Recommendations on the Review of Reports and White Papers on Restructuring and Rationalisation of Federal Government Parastatals, Agencies, and Commissions.”
