President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday swore in the new Head of Service (HoS) of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita.
She took the oath of office before the commencement of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by the President.
Oyo-Ita assumed the position of acting HoS in October 2015 when the former HoS, Mr. Danladi Kifasi proceeded on terminal leave.
Oyo-Ita’s citation was read by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, after which she took her oath of office and oath of allegiance before the President and proceeded to sign the oath register.
The President then counter-signed the register and shook hand with Oyo-Ita. Oyo-Ita promised to fight corruption in the system as well as boost capacity building for the civil servants.
