Breaking: President Tinubu merges National Agency for control of AIDS with NCDC to cut costs of governance  

President Tinubu has implemented the Oronsanye report by merging the National Agency for Control of AIDS (NACA) with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control in an attempt to cut costs of governance.  

The implementation of the Oronsanye report has resulted in the scraping of some agencies with many others merged to pave a way for a leaner government.  

President Tinubu has established a committee tasked with executing mergers, scrapping, and relocations within a 12-week timeline.  

President Tinubu emphasised that this action is designed to minimise the impact on civil servants’ job security, highlighting its alignment with the broader goal of reducing the overall cost of governance. 

The Oronsaye Report refers to the Report of the Presidential Committee on the Rationalisation and Restructuring of Federal Government Parastatals, Commissions, and Agencies.
