President Buhari Summons Kyari, Oyo-Ita Over Leaked Memo
President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, and the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, over their heated argument on k memo at the Council Chambers of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Recall that in the memo, Oyo-Ita advised President Buahrai against reinstatement and posting of the embattled former chairman of the Pension Reforms Commission, Abdulrasheed Maina.
However, Oyo-Ita, it was gathered, accused Kyari of being the brains behind the leakage.
A Presidency source, who spoke to The Punch on condition of anonymity on Wednesday, said the President was embarrassed when he was briefed about the altercation between Kyari and Oyo-Ita.
He said even the presence of the Vice President did not deter the two officials from the clash.
The source said, “The President was embarrassed when he leant about the altercation between the two officials. He, therefore, asked the two officials to see him after the FEC meeting. It was a gory sight, seeing the two officials almost fighting at the Council Chambers.
“Efforts made by the VP to calm the two officials were rebuffed by the two officials. It was apparent that none of them had faith in each other.”
