Contrary to speculations, the Presidency has denied the suspension of the Permanent Secretary, State House, Mr Jalal Arabi, as erroneously reported in some quarters.
In a statement issued by the Deputy Director, Information, State house, Mr Abiodun Oladunjoye, Mr Arabi is at his desk dutifully attending to important state matters and is not under any probe, neither is he a subject of any inquiry.
Also, there is absolutely no truth in the spurious allegations levelled against the Permanent Secretary and his office in the fictitious report published by an on-line medium.
“The Permanent Secretary and other Muslim faithful attended the Juma’at prayer at the State House mosque this afternoon with President Muhammadu Buhari in attendance,” the statement said.
