Update: Presidential retreat enters closed-door session
The presidential retreat for Ministers-designate, federal permanent secretaries and other top government functionaries being presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari has entered into a closed-door session.
TheNewsGuru (TNG) reports President Buhari on Monday in Abuja presided over the first day of the 2-day Presidential Retreat with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, some State Governors and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha in attendance.
The event was attended by all the Ministers-designate as well as Permanent Secretaries and heads of Federal Government agencies and departments.
However, it was observed that the Head of Service, Mrs Winifred Oyo-Ita, who has been listed as one of the resource persons at the retreat was conspicuously absent at the venue of the event.
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.
It was also observed that acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, would be presenting paper on anti-corruption efforts of the Buhari administration at the retreat later today.
