President Bola Tinubu has approved the immediate dissolution of the Governing Boards of all Federal Government Parastatals, Agencies, Institutions, and Government-Owned Companies.
The dissolution does not, however, affect Boards, Commissions and Councils listed in the Third Schedule, Part 1, Section 153 (i) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended.
In a statement by the Director, Information for the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Willie Bassey, directed those affected to refer matters requiring the attention of their Boards to the President, through the Permanent Secretaries of their respective supervisory Ministries and Offices pending the constitution of a new board.
The Permanent Secretaries were in turn directed to route such correspondences to the President through the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
All Ministries, Departments and Agencies are to ensure compliance to the provision of the directive which took effect from Friday 16th June, 2023.
The statement therefore directed the Permanent Secretaries to inform the Chief Executive Officers of the affected Agencies under the supervision of their respective Ministries/Offices for immediate compliance.
