Benin streamlines Presidency-attached institutions

The new government in Benin has taken on Thursday a series of measures to remove several institutions attached to the presidency under the previous regime of Yayi Boni, official source said in Cotonou.


State Minister Pascal Koupaki made public the decision during a press conference. Among the concerned institutions, the official cited the High Commissioner for National Solidarity, High Commissioner for Collaborative Governance, Presidential Investment Council, Office of Auditor General as well as projects development monitoring Unit.

The measures were purposed, he explained, to ensure the good governance of State treasury.

The measures taken also regulate security mechanism of high-ranking officials, according to the same source.

“From now on, no gendarme and police officers will act as bodyguard. The security of the president, ministers, members of parliament and others will be provided by militaries”, the minister said.

He added that gendarme and police officers who are currently providing such task should return to their headquarters for their traditional public safety mission. Enditem
