The head of service of the federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, has returned to her desk on Thursday following the rejection of her offer of early retirement by President Muhammadu Buhari. Oyo-Ita had last weekend sent in her letter directly to the president following pressure mounted on her to quit the job by her sons.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) recently questioned Oyo-Ita over allegations that she used front companies to get contracts when she was a permanent secretary before her appointment as head of service by Buhari in 2015. She vehemently denied involvement in any scam.

Winifred Oyo-Ita had been absent from public functions after the EFCC grilling, but she was present on Wednesday at the swearing-in of ministers after meeting with the chief of staff to the president, Abba Kyari. There are however insinuations that her being victimised did not sit well with Buhari, who eventually turned down her offer to retire.
