Oyo-Ita arrived the forecourt of the State House in her official SUV around 9.45am.
She had walked straight to the office of the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.
She had been absent at the two-day Presidential Retreat for ministers designate, federal permanent secretaries and top government functionaries held at the old Banquet Hall on Monday and Tuesday.
Oyo-Ita, who was expected to speak on ‘Consolidating Ongoing Reforms in the Public Service’ on Tuesday didn’t show up.
It may be recalled that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had last week Tuesday grilled Oyo-Ita over alleged N3b contract scam.
Media reports on Monday had claimed that Oyo-Ita had submitted her letter of retirement from the service
But the Presidency had countered by saying that it was yet to receive the resignation letter.
Oyo-Ita was still at the Chief of Staff office at the time of filing this report.
