The Federal Executive Council (FEC) met on Monday to approve the adoption of the Oronsaye Report, which aims to streamline government operations and reduce the cost of governance. Mohammed Idris, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, announced this decision during a briefing with State House correspondents after the FEC meeting. The meeting was chaired by President Bola Tinubu and held at the Council Chamber in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

During the meeting, Minister Idris explained the consequences of implementing the report. He mentioned that the government has restructured several agencies, commissions, and departments to improve their operational efficiency. This restructuring involved eliminating some entities, merging others, incorporating some into existing bodies, and transferring some departments to new ministries.

In a bold move demonstrating the administration’s commitment to making decisive decisions in the interest of Nigerians, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu spearheaded the implementation of the Oronsaye Report. This decision aims not only to refine and restructure government operations but also to align with President Tinubu’s vision to curtail the overall cost of governance.

While stressing the far-reaching nature of this decision, Minister Idris clarified that the adoption of the report does not necessarily translate to job losses for individuals employed in the affected agencies and departments.

One notable change outlined in the report is the merging of the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria (FRCN) with the Voice of Nigeria (VON), reflecting the government’s commitment to optimizing resources and enhancing efficiency in the broadcasting sector.

The adoption of the Oronsaye Report represents a significant step towards achieving a more streamlined and efficient government structure, in line with President Tinubu’s overarching goal of fostering sustainable development and prudent management of resources for the benefit of all Nigerians.
