The former Anambra state governor advocated for cutting the cost of governance across the board.

Obi urged Tinubu’s administration to deploy funds from needless wastage to the critical areas of Education, Health, and pulling people out of poverty.

He, however, warned that the federal government should not rush into implementation because of those who would be affected by the policy.

“Having found it imperative to implement the Report, the government should now do away with the bogus and needless wastages of our scarce resources on frivolous issues, and deploy such funds to the critical areas of Education, Health, and pulling people out of poverty.
“However, we must not rush to implement the Oronsaye Report just because those that will be directly affected are mostly civil servants. A very deep understanding of the workings of the Federal bureaucracy will be required to effectively implement the Report.”
