Kemi Adeosun has reportedly resigned from her responsibilities as Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, sending the President Buhari-led administration in search of her replacement.
Many believe her resignation is not unconnected to previous claims the minister had forged her National Youth Service Corps certificate. However, The PUNCH newspaper reports that the minister was in her office this morning, putting a blur to the authenticity of the news about her resignation.
Since the allegations of her falsified NYSC Certificate made it to the public, many Nigerians have called for either a thorough investigation by the Federal Government or her resignation for resuming office with a falsified document.
Appointed by President Muhammadu Buhari in November 2015, Adeosun became Nigeria’s Minister of Finance after been cleared by the Department of State Services and by the Senate.
