Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, on Thursday suspended the Secretary to the State Government, Ms Modupe Alade, with immediate effect.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Idowu Adelusi, who made this known in a statement issued in Ekiti, the state capital, said the SSG has been directed to proceed on a three-month suspension from office.
According to the statement, Mr Olugbenga Faseluka, the state Head of Civil Service, is to be acting SSG until Alade’s resumption.
Although Adelusi did not give further details on Alade’s suspension, the Street Journal gathered that the SSG was given the yellow card on account of alleged incompetence.
Prior to her appointment as SSG, Alade was a retired Permanent Secretary and treasurer of Ayo Fayose Campaign organization in the last governorship election in the state.
