Reps to probe duplication of duties in MDA’s, moot merger

House of Representatives
House of Representatives

The House of Representatives has resolved to set up an ad-hoc committee to investigate and proffer solutions on the duplications of functions in various ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) of the federal government.

This followed the adoption of a motion by Mohammed Tahir Monguno (APC, Borno) at the plenary wEDNESday. The lawmaker said there were about 1,484 agencies, departments, boards, parastatals and corporations in the country, which gave rise to duplication of functions and clash of interests.

The House resolved to set up an ad-hoc committee to investigate duplication of duties, overlapping functions and counter-productivity of established agencies, departments, boards, parastatals and corporations in the country.

It is to also make recommendations for the mergers, synergies and justification of the existence of some established agencies, departments, boards, parastatals and corporations, which are no longer needed.
