President Bola Tinubu has ordered the implementation of the Oronsaye White Paper Report, which outlines recommendations for streamlining government agencies to reduce the cost of governance.

The announcement was made by Bayo Onanuga, the Special Adviser on Information and Strategy to President Tinubu, in a tweet on Monday.


“Twelve years after the Steve Oronsaye panel submitted its report on restructuring and rationalizing Federal government parastatals and agencies and a white paper issued two years after, President Tinubu and the Federal Executive Council today decided to implement the report. Many agencies will be scrapped and many others will be merged, to pave way to a leaner government,” Onanuga tweeted.

The Oronsaye Presidential Committee was established by the Federal Government to propose ways to restructure and rationalise government parastatals, commissions, and agencies.

One of the committee’s key recommendations is the consolidation of the EFCC, ICPC, and the Code of Conduct Bureau into a single anti-corruption agency.

This would involve repealing the existing laws governing these three entities and enacting a new law to establish the consolidated agency.

The new agency would be structured with departments dedicated to prosecution, investigation, prevention (advocacy), and asset declaration/forfeiture.
