Oronsaye Report

Joe Abah, a former director-general of Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR), has provided ten robust guidelines for the practical and comprehensive application of the Oronsaye report. 

The 2012 report, known as the Stephen Oronsaye report, details the overhaul of the federal government’s ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs). 

The report was published during the administration of former president Goodluck Jonathan, and the white paper was submitted to president Buhari by a committee in 2022.
