President Buhari Slashes
Ministers’ Foreign Trips & Estacodes

In a bid to reduce the cost of governance and ensure effective management of government resources, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved a reduction in the number and duration of foreign trips for ministers and other categories of government officials. The President has instructed the removal of estacodes and also a cut in the number of persons allowed to travel with the ministers and other top government officials for official trips.

Engage your state governments and representatives in the National Assembly to also cut their cost of governance!
