N3bn Fraud: Oyo-Ita desperate to meet Buhari, embarks on ‘sick leave’

The embattled Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winnifred Oyo-Ita, was making frantic efforts as of Friday evening to secure an appointment with President Muhammadu Buhari over her travails, SATURDAY PUNCH has learnt.



Oyo-Ita is currently in the eye of the storm after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission reportedly questioned her over alleged N3bn bribery, duty tour allowance falsification and fraud case.

A Presidency source told our correspondent on Friday that the embattled HOCSF has been reaching out to government officials who she feels can assist her to secure appointment with Buhari who is currently in his hometown, Daura, Katsina State.

The purpose of the audience she is seeking, the source said, is to enable her to explain herself personally to the President.



As of the time of filing this report however, Oyo-Ita has not succeeded in meeting Buhari since her travails started.

Calls made to her known telephone line between 6.47pm and 7.12pm entered call forwarding mode, signaling that the number was not available.
A source close to her had however told journalists late Thursday that she had proceeded on leave officially “to attend to her health condition.”

He said while the HOCSF admitted that the acting chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, invited her verbally, she was never detained at the commission since “she denied all allegations on fraudulent conduct.”
