In the latest development of the clash between Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, and the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita, President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday summoned both over the issue, report according to Punch Newspaper  detailed.

We had yesterday reported that there was disquiet between the Kyari and Oyo-Ita over the leaked memo which explained President Muhammadu Buhari's role in the reinstatement of the fugitive pension boss, Abdulrasheed Maina.

Punch Newspaper detailed that the fierce crossfire between Kyari and Oyo-Ita, which occurred shortly before the Federal Executive Council meeting, was believed to have been caused by the leaked memo, which Oyo-Ita sent to Kyari on the controversial reinstatement and posting of the embattled former chairman of the Pension Reforms Commission, Abdulrasheed Maina.

A source at the meeting said Kyari accused Oyo-Ita of leaking the memo, which she wrote to the CoS on the reinstatement of Mr Abdulrasheed Maina into the Civil Service.

In the memo, which was exclusively published by The PUNCH on Tuesday, Oyo-Ita said that she warned the President against asking Maina to return to the civil service, saying doing so could affect the anti-corruption war of the Federal Government.

Oyo-Ita, it was gathered, also accused Kyari of being the brains behind the leakage.


The altercation occurred in the presence of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki; Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara; National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, John Odigie-Oyegun; service chiefs and ministers.
