The House of Representatives has suggested the merger of Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON) with the Public Service Institute of Nigeria (PSIN).
The lawmakers said the merger will save cost and address the issue of duplicate functions by government agencies.
Chairman, House Ad-hoc Committee on the review of duplication of government agencies, Victor Mela Danzaria, disclosed this when the Director General Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON), Mrs Cecilia Gayya, appeared before the Committee.
The Director General Centre for black and African Arts and Civilization Oluwabunmi Amao was also present to defend the existence of her agency citing reasons why it should stand alone.
Recall that the Chairman of the Committee had said duplicated agencies with same functions are costing the federal government a lot of money to maintain agencies and run while discharging similar responsibilities
