Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, has lifted the suspension placed on the Secretary to the State Government, Dr (Mrs.) Modupe Alade.This came after entreaties by the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe Aladesanmi 111, foremost lawyer, Aare Afe Babalola (SAN) and the Catholic Bishop of Ekiti, Right Revd. Felix Ajakaye and others,
The personalities pleaded on behalf of the SSG during the celebration of the 25th coronation anniversary of Oba Adejugbe Aladesanmi in Ado- Ekiti yesterday.
The SSG, who was suspended some days ago for three months by the governor has therefore been pardoned and asked to resume duties tomorrow.
The Ewi said his joy on the occasion would not be complete if the governor did not accede to the request.
In his response, the governor said he had no choice other than to defer to the eminent personalities, but warned against indiscipline on the part of public officers and civil servants. He noted that though he is a kindhearted governor, he would not compromise discipline.
