President Bola Tinubu has implemented a temporary ban on all public funded foreign trips for all Federal Government officials
The suspension which takes effect from April 1, 2024, was contained in a circular dated March 12, 2024 from the State House and addressed to Secretary to the Government of the Federation, George Akume, for onward circulation to all the Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs).
This directive from the president is coming three weeks after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) approved the full implementation of the Steve Oronsaye Report which recommended the merger of government agencies and commissions, as a move to cut governance cost.
Describing the ban as part of his administration’s cost reduction process , the president also directed all government officials who intend to go on any public-funded international trip to seek and obtain presidential approval at least two weeks prior to embarking on any such trip, which must be deemed absolutely necessary.
