The Federal Government has set up another White Paper Committee to review the parastatals, agencies and commissions created since 2014.

In 2011, a committee was set up on the restructuring and rationalisation of Federal Government parastatals, commissions and agencies which was chaired by former Head of Service, Steve Orosanye.

Speaking during the inauguration on Friday in Abuja, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, lamented the inability of the government to implement the recommendations of the report, adding that it had impacted on the scarce resources of the government.

He gave the committee six weeks to submit its report.

He said, “You would all agree with me that the inability to implement the report of the Committee on Restructuring and Rationalisation of Federal Government Parastatals,

“Agencies and the Commission are costing the government highly. This cost grows higher and the situation is further worsened by the fact that new agencies are being created.

“After the submission of the Amal Pepple report, there is the need to constitute a White Paper Committee to consider its recommendations by the Government; hence the inauguration today of this Committee.
I look forward to working with you on delivering this assignment. However, you have six weeks to turn in your reports to the Government. ”
