The Federal Government, on Tuesday, set up a 16-member committee to review the structure of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in the aftermath of the recent merger of some key ministries.
The Acting Head of Service, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, inaugurated the committee in Abuja, stating that the action was critical to achieving the desired results.
According to her, it was appropriate to ensure seamless transition in operations of the affected ministries and agencies.
“In this regard, there is need to establish effective structures for the ministries including proper absorption of their existing personnel as well as ensuring that they get running without much delay.
“Accordingly, government has constituted this committee comprising knowledgeable retired and serving public officers to review the structure of the merged ministries.
“It is a very sensitive assignment which calls for your time and commitment; this is another opportunity for us to re-set the public service to meet the present government`s change objective,’’ she said.
Continuing, the HOS said the committee is to carry out a review of each ministry`s functions and responsibilities and determine the appropriate functions to avoid overlap. She said the committee was also to assess the current organizational structure of each ministry and recommend improved structure for efficient and effective service delivery.
The committee, is headed by Mrs Ebele Okeke, a former HOS.
