Dr Modupe Alade who is the secretary to the Ekiti State government has debunked news that she resigned her appointment from Governor Ayodele Fayose’s
News had spread to town on Monday that she had resigned her appointment for an undisclosed reason.
Social media was awash with the news of her resignation, forcing the state government to debunk the rumour in the state owned Broadcasting Service.
The rumour came barely a week after a former Commissioner for Works, Kayode Oso, resigned from the cabinet “on health ground.”
Dispelling the rumour of her alleged resignation, Alade in a terse message to journalists in Ado Ekiti, said she was on a two-week casual leave, commencing from Monday.
She said it was regrettable that people misinterpreted her vacation for outright resignation, adding that she remained a staunch loyalist of the governor.
Alade said she will return to her duty post at the expiration of her leave.
