Oyo-Ita

Embattled Head of Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, arrived the Presidential Villa, Abuja as President Muhammadu Buhari prepared to inaugurate his new cabinet members.

Oyo-Ita is being probed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) over alleged financial infractions to the tune of N3 billion.

She had avoided attending the two-day retreat organised for the ministers-designate on Monday and Tuesday by the presidency.

She was expected to make a presentation at the retreat on Tuesday, but she failed to show up.
