Earlier, TheTalk.NG reported that President Tinubu is reportedly ready for the merger of some agencies in his move to cut down the cost of governance by his administration.

This is as the presidency announced the plan to implement the Steve Oronsaye panel report on restructuring and rationalising the agencies and parastatals of the federal government.

According to Bayo Onanuga, one of the spokespersons to President Bola Tinubu, the Oronsaya panel report was done 12 years ago, and a white paper was issued two years later.
