Nigerian Finance Minister Adeosun resigns over forgery claims

Is Kemi Adeosun going to face prosecution now that she has resigned

Kemi Adeosun, who lived in the United Kingdom until she was 34, said she had been told she was exempt because she was over 30.

The former investment banker said she was issued with a certificate that she thought was genuine.

Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina in a statement said Buhari thanked Adeosun for her services to the nation.


"The PDP is also aware of plots by the Federal Government to secretly move her out of the country, and for that, we urge the worldwide community to be at alert and ensure she is repatriated to face justice in Nigeria should the Federal Government succeeds in its devious plan". "It was a decision she took and posterity will judge her positively for doing the honourable thing by resigning from office", the aide said.

THE WHISTLER recalls that Adeosun's alleged certificate forgery was first brought to the public domain after PREMIUM TIMES exclusively reported months back that the minister allegedly submitted "fake" NYSC certificate in 2015 when President Muhmmadu Buhari appointed her finance minister. I only wished she had done this earlier. Her main policy was a bid to improve tax collection and crack down on mismanagement by government agencies.

NYSC is a one-year mandatory national service for graduates below the age of 30 from universities across Africa's most populous nation.
