The government rejected the merger of the EFCC and ICPC.
The Federal Government has released a White Paper on the recommendations of a committee set up to review Nigeria’s ministries, departments, and agencies, MDAs.
The presidential committee was headed by a former Head of Service, Stephen Orosanye.
In the white paper, the government approved the merger of three aviation agencies: Nigeria Airspace Management Agency, NAMA; the Nigeria Civil Aviation Authority, NCAA; and the Nigeria Meteorological Agency, NIMET.
The three agencies will be merged to form the Federal Civil Aviation Authority.
The government also accepted the amendment of the enabling laws of the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, to specify the tenure of its Chief Executive Officer, CEO; to conform with those of other agencies.
The government, however, rejected the proposal to merge three anti-graft agencies. The government rejected the merger of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC; with the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, ICPC; and the Code of Conduct Bureau, CCB.
The FG also rejected the merger of the Nigeria Television Authority, NTA; the Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria, FRCN; and the Voice of Nigeria, VON.
The government also rejected the merger of three examination bodies, WAEC, NECO, and NABTEB. It also said the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB, will continue as central examination body for university admissions.
