Nigerian govt ministries, depts, and agencies

  1. 1. NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT MINISTRIES, DEPARTMENTS & AGENCIES
  2. 2. It is generally known that the Nigerian democratic system is perhaps one of the most (if not the most) expensive democracy in the world. Beside the perennial systemic corruption, there is duplication of functions across several Ministries and Agencies; this actually is one of the reasons why the Recurrent Expenditures of yearly budget dwarfs Capital Expenditures. It is in this regard that in 2012, President Goodluck Jonathan inaugurated the Steve Oronsanye Committee with the aim of “Restructuring and Rationalization of the Federal Government Agencies, Parastatals and Commissions”. Some of its recommendations are:  the scrapping of 102 federal government statutory agencies from the present 263;  the abolition of 38 agencies;  the merger of 52 and reversion of 14 to mere departments in some ministries.  the discontinuation of government funding of professional bodies and councils. While some recommendations were approved and others rejected, in May 2014 Government went further to inaugurate an implementation committee on the White Paper of the report with a task to urgently wind up and harmonise agencies as approved by government.

  3. 3. Unfortunately, as at the time of this piece, none of the approved recommendations have been implemented, and business continues as usual. On a personal review of the Agencies, particularly the Ministry of Education which has WAEC and NECO conducting basically the same sets of examination; there is no reason why this two should not be merged to reduce government spending. In addition, the Universities, the Polytechnics/Monotechnics, and the Colleges of Education are each regulated by the NATIONAL UNIVERSITIES COMMISSION (NUC), the NATIONAL BOARD FOR TECHNICAL EDUCATION (NBTE), and the NATIONAL COMMISSION FOR COLLEGE OF EDUCATION (NCCE). The Committee recommended that NBTE should be subsumed along with the NCCE under the NUC to form the proposed tertiary education regulatory body known as TERTIARY EDUCATION COMMISSION (TEC) - this recommendation was however rejected. Several agencies exist in different Ministries that should actually get the attention of government for proper pruning and effective service delivery.

  10. 10. FEDERAL EXECUTIVE COUNCILS There are other Bodies that helps Government executive some of its primary functions, they are not regarded as Ministries but some are referred to as Constitutional Bodies. 1 AUDITOR GENERAL FOR THE FEDERATION 2 CODE OF CONDUCT BUREAU 3 CODE OF CONDUCT TRIBUNAL 4 FEDERAL CHARACTER COMMISSION 5 FEDERAL CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION 6 FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY COMMISSION 7 INDEPENDENT CORRUPT PRACTICES AND RELATED OFFENCES COMMISSION 8 INDEPENDENT NATIONAL ELECTORAL COMMISSION 9 INFRASTRUCTURE CONCESSIONARY REGULATORY COMMISSION 10 NATIONAL JUDICIAL COUNCIL 11 NATIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION 12 NATIONAL SALARIES, INCOMES AND WAGES COMMISSION 13 NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER 14 OFFICE OF THE HEAD OF THE CIVIL SERVICE OF THE FEDERATION 15 POLICE FORMATIONS AND COMMAND 16 POLICE SERVICE COMMISSION 17 PUBLIC COMPLAINTS COMMISSION 18 REVENUE MOBILISATION, ALLOCATION AND FISCAL COMMISSION 19 SECRETARY TO THE GOVERNMENT OF THE FEDERATION
  11. 11. AGENCY/DEPARTMENT/PARASTATAL Almost every Ministries have its own Agency / Department / Parastatal. Beside the Director General (DG) or Head of the Agency, who leads these Agencies; a collection of people known as Board Members also have some functionary oversights over Agencies. Reducing or merging a number of Agencies goes a long way to safe money for Government

  14. 14. No doubt, the resources required to maintain and sustain these Departments and Agencies is enormous. As recommended by the Steve Oronsanye Committee; some Agencies need to be SCRAPPED, MERGED or RESTRUCTURED. This report should be a starting point to streamline Government spending. While Agencies and Departments are created based on the requirement to meet Citizens’ need, it is also important to continue to review the effectiveness and productivity of each Agency to justify expended state resources. RATIONALIZATION OF AGENCIES, PARASTATALS, AND COMMISSIONS WOULD HELP THE GOVERNMENT TO REPOSITION THE MINISTRIES TO SUPERVISE MANDATES OF THE PARASTATALS. IT RECOGNIZED THAT THE REFORM WOULD HAVE DIMENSIONS AND COST IMPLICATIONS AND RECOMMENDED THAT GOVERNMENT SHOULD FOCUS ON EMPOWERING THE MDAS “TO DO MORE FOR LESS” Here is a statement from the Steve Oronsanye Committee (Pg. 6)
