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

Briefing newsmen at the end of the FEC meeting presided over by President Bola Tinubu at the State House, Abuja, Information and National Orientation Minister, Mohammed Idris, said the adoption of the report, which was submitted to Federal Government in 2012, means that some agencies, commissions and departments of government have been scrapped, merged, subsumed under some others and others moved to new ministries where they are supposed to perform better.

He said: “In a very bold move today, this administration, under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu, consistent again with his courage to take very far-reaching decisions in the interest of Nigerians, has taken a decision to implement the so-called Orosanye Report. 

“Now, what that means is that a number of agencies, commissions, and some departments have actually been scrapped, some have been merged, while others have been subsumed. Others, of course, have also been moved from some ministries to others where government feels they will operate better.

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

The Minister, however, explained that the adoption of the report did not mean people working in the affected agencies and departments will lose their jobs.
