Some of the permanent secretaries led by the new Acting Head of Civil Service of the federation, Mrs. Winifred Ekanem Oyo-Ita, held a closed door with the president at the presidential villa.

Most of those affected are senior to the acting Head of Service.
It was gathered that the development brought tears to Oyo-Ita at the meeting as she felt sympathy for the Permanent Secretaries who just lost their jobs.
