However, the affected aide went to his verified Facebook page denying that he was suspended.

“The claims suggesting I Emmanuel Adebisi has been suspended and removed from a WhatsApp group are categorically false. I continue to serve diligently in my capacity as Senior Special Assistant to the Governor of Osun State, with unwavering commitment to my responsibilities. Any insinuation of my involvement in misconduct, particularly relating to the alleged diversion of 70 bags of rice intended for Osun Civil Societies during the Eid-el-Kabir festival, is entirely baseless and without merit and the hand work of some bitter politicians and I challenge anyone with fact on this to bring it out”, he said.
