Buhari To Merge EFCC, ICPC; 42 Ministries Reduced To 19

0

President Muhammadu Buhari  is said to have accepted the recommendation of the transition committee he raised a few weeks ago to slash the number of ministries from the present 42 to 19 with a view to saving cost and making them more effective and responsive to the needs of  Nigerians. Many of the ministries have been merged to ensure proper coordination of duties and ensure greater efficiency and service delivery. Effectively, it means that no fewer than 50 of the MDAs that were not backed by relevant laws might be scrapped and their staff moved into relevant departments to save cost.

The Presidency source hinted,”But the point being made is that relevant MDAs that will exist under the present administration must be those backed by laws.What that means is that the era of doing things the wrong way to please certain persons in positions of power is over.”
