How I Got Fake NYSC Certificate - Adeosun

President Muhammadu Buhari has accepted the resignation of finance minister Mrs Kemi Adeosun

President Muhammadu Buhari has accepted the resignation of the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun.

Sources quoted her as saying, she had to go because the alleged forgery of her National Youth Service Corps Certificate made her position as Minister untenable.

A statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP National Publicity Secretary, called for Adeosun's immediate arrest and prosecution, while also alleging that there were plans by the Federal Government to "help her evade prosecution", by secretly moving her out of the country.

Nigeria's Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun attends the 2018 Annual Meetings of the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) in Abuja, Nigeria July 13, 2018.

Adeosun was appointed by Buhari to manage the finances of Africa's biggest economy in November 2015.

She courted controversy again when she suspended and subsequently fired Mr Munir Gwarzo as the Director-General of the Nigerian Securities and Exchange Commission with Gwarzo challenging her powers to suspend him.

But an internal investigation showed that it was forged.

"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 global community to be at alert and ensure she is repatriated to face justice in Nigeria should the Federal Government succeeds in its devious plan", Ologbodiyan claimed.

Meanwhile, President Buhari has approved that the Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, should oversee the Ministry of Finance with effect from today.

She said, "having never worked in NYSC, visited the premises, been privy to nor familiar with their operations, I had no reason to suspect that the certificate was anything but genuine".
