The Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, who was reported to be on medical leave, was on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, to witness the swearing-in of Ministers-designate.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Head of Service, who was also reported to have submitted her resignation letter to the Presidency over alleged contract scam, was seen seated in her ‘traditional’ position at the Council Chambers of the presidential villa.
Oyo-Ita, who arrived the presidential villa shortly before the commencement of the inauguration of the ministers by the president, was seen heading towards the office of the Chief of Staff to the President, Malam Abba Kyari.
Oyo-Ita was reported to be on medical leave after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) quizzed her over an alleged contract scam to the tune of N3 billion.
Mean while, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Boss Mustapha, who was earlier reappointed by the president, first took his oath of office during the inauguration of the Ministers.
