Mrs Oyo-Ita arrived the forecourt of the State House in her official sport utility vehicle (SUV) around 9.45 a.m. She had walked straight to the office of the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.
The Head of Civil Service had been absent at the two-day presidential retreat for ministers-designate, Federal permanent secretaries and top government functionaries at the old Banquet Hall on Monday and Tuesday. She did not show up on Tuesday when she was scheduled to speak on the topic: Consolidating Ongoing Reforms in the Public Service.
