Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, the embattled Head of Civil Service of the Federation, made a surprise visit to the Aso Villa on Wednesday.

She was spotted at the inauguration of the new Federal Executive Council.

Arriving the villa around 9.45 am, Oyo Ita made her way to the office of the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.

According to informed sources, being the Head of Service, she was supposed to be at the two retreats for ministers-designate but she did not attend until Wednesday following a contract scam allegation against her office.

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), last week, grilled her for an alleged N3 billion contract scam but she was yet to deny the allegations before reports surfaced on Monday that she had thrown in the towel over the issue.

Responding on Monday, the Presidency countered the reports, saying it had not received such retirement letter.
