EXTRA: Oyo-Ita, Abba Kyari laugh away during FEC meeting

It appears Winifred Oyo-Ita, Head of Service of the Federation, and Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, may have mended fences following an angry encounter between the two top officials during last week’s Federal Executive meeting.

Both officials were captured on camera engaged in what appears to be an angry argument last Wednesday, shortly before the FEC meeting begun.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and Babagana Monguno, the National Security Adviser were seen in the video while Oyo-Ita and Kyari lashed out on each other.

There was no sound in the video clip, and so it was not possible to say what the argument was about, but Oyo-Ita later walked out angrily on the three men and went to sit at her position, visibly seething with anger.

However, at Wednesday’s FEC meeting, both Oyo-Ita and Kyari were pictured chatting and laughing away, perhaps signifying that all is now well.
