Osun State Official Emmanuel Adebisi Denies Suspension and Rice Diversion Allegations

Emmanuel Adebisi, the Special Assistant on Civil Society Organisations to Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke, has publicly defended himself against reports of his suspension and allegations of misconduct.

Governor Adeleke had directed Adebisi’s suspension on Wednesday, pending an investigation by Chief of Staff Kazeem Akinleye. The suspension was announced by the governor’s spokesman, Olawale Rasheed, following accusations that Adebisi was involved in diverting 70 bags of rice meant for civil society groups during the last Eid-el-Kabir festival.

In a statement posted on his Facebook page, Adebisi refuted the allegations and the news of his suspension. He wrote, “It has come to my attention that recent reports circulating in the media regarding me, Comrade Adebisi Emmanuel, Senior Special Assistant to Governor Ademola Adeleke on Civil Societies, are misleading and untrue. The claims suggesting that I, Emmanuel Adebisi, have been suspended and removed from a WhatsApp group are categorically false.”

Adebisi emphasized his continued service and commitment to his role, dismissing the accusations as baseless. He stated, “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 handiwork of some bitter political fools and I challenge anyone with fact on this to bring it out.”

Reaffirming his dedication to his position, Adebisi added, “I, Comrade Adebisi Emmanuel, remain an integral part of the Osun Government team and continue to uphold the highest standards of integrity and service. We urge the media and the public to disregard the misinformation being circulated and refrain from spreading unsubstantiated claims that could tarnish the reputation of dedicated public servants.”
