Metro Maina's Recall: Interior Ministry’s PS, Abubakar Magaji, Takes Responsibility



The Head of Service, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, and the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Interior, Mr. Abubakar Magaji, traded words after Magaji insisted that he acted on a letter from Oyo-Ita in recalling Maina.

But, the HoS was able to establish that Magaji acted on a letter from the Federal Civil Service Commission without getting a formal directive from her office.

The permanent secretary later said his office acted on the FCSC letter because it believed that it was the body constitutionally empowered to employ and promote civil servants.

“I take responsibility for the administrative error by the Ministry of Interior in the whole matter,” he said.
