Reps pledge to follow due process in Oronsaye report review

  • It was originally drafted in 2012 under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration

The House of Representatives has committed to following proper procedures in its examination of the Steve Oronsaye Report.

The report proposed consolidating and eliminating certain Federal Government Ministries, Departments, and Agencies to enhance efficiency and service delivery.

Originally drafted in 2012 under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, the Oronsaye Report has resurfaced with President Bola Tinubu signaling readiness to implement its recommendations.

The move was made on Wednesday during a recent public hearing convened by the House of Representatives to discuss the report.

Ibrahim Isiaka, Chairman of the House Ad-Hoc Committee on the Restructuring of Government Agencies, Parastatals, and Commissions, assured stakeholders of due diligence.

“The committee would not act without going through due process.” He further reassured Nigerian workers, emphasizing, “We are not going to scrap your head behind you. We will invite all organizations to provide input, ensuring concerns about layoffs are addressed.”

Recall that the Federal Executive Council under Tinubu had earlier approved the report’s implementation on February 26, 2024.

Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, subsequently inaugurated an eight-member committee on March 7, 2024, tasked with executing the report’s recommendations within 12 weeks.
