Alleged N3bn fraud: Oyo-Ita opens up on EFCC probe, Buhari’s intervention


The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation Mrs. Winifred Oyo- Ita has revealed why she returned to work after questioning by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) over alleged N3bn fraud.

A source in her office confided that Oyo- Ita informally told staff close to her that President Muhammadu Buhari asked her to come back to the office.

For this, she said she was obliged to return and continue her job.
It was earlier speculated that Oyo- Ita had resigned after so much pressure from the EFCC and the Presidency.

Her absence at the two-day retreat for the newly inaugurated ministers fueled the speculation.

Investigations revealed that contrary to viral reports, the HoS did not put in her resignation, even though she was absent at the ministerial retreat.

Workers at her office also confirmed that she was still working at her office as at Thursday (today) by 4 pm.
