President Muhammadu Buhari he has authorized a review of the white paper on the rationalization of government parastatals and agencies.
He made this assertion in his address to mark the 2020 Democracy Day on Friday June 12.
President Buhari said, “In the face of dwindling resources and rising cost of governance, I have authorized that the White Paper on the Rationalisation of Government Parastatals and Agencies be reviewed for implementation.
He added that, “I will continue to give all the necessary support for the on-going reforms designed to return discipline, integrity and patriotism as the hallmark of the public service.
“The Public Service of Nigeria remains the bedrock for the formulation and implementation of policies, programmes and projects in the country. This accounts for why it continues to evolve especially as new socio-economic challenges emerge for Government to address,” the president said.
