President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari may scrap some Ministries, Departments and Agencies of the government in a bid to cut the cost of governance, it has emerged.

Buhari is believed to have accepted the recommendation of the transition committee to slash the number of ministries from the present 42 to 19, Vanguard reports. This is to ensure proper coordination of duties and ensure greater efficiency and service delivery.

A source close to the Presidency told  Sunday  Vanguard that the number of  Federal Government departments and agencies had also been trimmed in line with the policy of the administration.

“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,” Vanguard quoted the source to have said.


The source said Buhari would have only 19 ministers and 17 ministers of state.

It was further gathered that some ministries would be run by senior ministers while others would be manned by junior ministers to save cost.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission  (EFCC) is also to be merged with the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC). The president is expected to make some key appointments this week.
