“This decision follows the streamlining of ministries in the state from 19 to a leaner 13, as part of efforts to free up resources to be used for providing schools, hospitals, roads and other public goods.”

“The government, which had at inception declared its determination to cut costs, drive efficiency and improve service delivery, is continuing the restructuring of its agencies.”

“To ensure that the number of permanent secretaries is properly aligned with the new structure, there will be only 13 permanent secretaries for the 13 ministries.

“The ministries are: Justice, Agriculture and Forestry, Commerce, Industry and Tourism, Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Youth, Sports and Culture and Environment and Natural Resources. Others are: Women Affairs and Social Development, Water Resources, Health and Human Services, and Education, Science and Technology. The rest are: Budget and Planning, Finance and Works, Housing and Transport.”

“In addition, five departments will be headed by permanent secretaries. These are: the Public Service Office; the Bureau of Establishments; Political and Economic Affairs; Cabinet and Security Services and General Services. This will bring the total number of permanent secretaries in the civil service to 18”.
