MDAs to be Affected by Orosanye Report

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

On Monday, February 26, 2024, the Federal Executive Council (FEC) approved the implementation of the Stephen Oronsaye Report about 12 years it was submitted by the former Head of Civil Service.

The information has continued to generate reactions from various quarters, with some saying it is just a diversionary tactic employed by the government of President Bola Tinubu to shift attention away from the current economic hardship in the country.

The report recommended the trimming of the federal government’s ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) to cut the cost of governance, especially because some of them have duplicity of functions.

The implementation of the report, released in 2012, will see the merger, scrapping, and relocation of some MDAs.
