Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari mid week met the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Winnifred Oyo-Ita behind closed doors in Abuja.
Speaking later, Oyo-Ita said she briefed Buhari on the Federal Integrated Staff Housing programme, the 2017- 2019 Head of Service Strategic Plan and other activities of the service during the meeting.
“Mr. President wanted an update on the civil service so far and especially the 2017 – 2019 Head of Service Strategic Plan.
“I also briefed him on our Federal Integrated Staff Housing programme which as you all know is a sub-set of Mr. President’s National Housing Policy, which is so dear to his heart.”
About the housing programme, she said her office was working with the developers and the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria especially in the area of mortgage facilities for civil servants.
Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, had been cooperating with her office in that regard, she added.
