This Special Presidential Panel is to immediately undertake a comprehensive review and audit of existing financial frameworks and policy guidelines of the social investment programmes with a view to implementing a total re-engineering of the financial architecture of the programmes with detailed modification to procedures guiding the programmes’ implementation.

The Special Presidential Panel, comprising ministers representing strategic sectors, will ensure a multi-disciplinary approach to the reform effort.

It is made up of the Co-ordinating Minister of the Economy and Minister of Finance as Chairman, the Coordinating Minister of Health and Social Welfare as member.

Other members are the Minister of Budget and Economic Planning, Minister of Information and National Orientation – Membe, Minister of Communicatons, Innovation and Digital Economy, and the Minister of State for Youth
