President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday administered oath of office on the new Head of Service (HoS) of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita.
She was inaugurated before the commencement of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting presided over by the President.
The inauguration has made her the substantive Head of Service.
It could be recalled that she had been in acting capacity in October 2015 when the former HoS, Mr. Danladi Kifasi proceeded on terminal leave.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, read her citation 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.
Among those who also shook hands with her included Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari.
Speaking with State House correspondents at the end of the inauguration, Oyo-Ita promised that she will fight corruption in the system and to boost capacity building for the civil servants.
