Nigeria Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, has reportedly resigned her appointment.

Reports says it is not clear when the Minister submitted her resignation letter.

Adeosun’s resignation is coming after an allegation that she forged her National Youth Service Corps certificate.

DAILY POST had reported that Adeosun, who graduated from London East Polytechnic at the age of 22 in 1989, 

failed to comply with NYSC Act, which made it compulsory for every Nigerian graduate at home or abroad to

participate in one year of mandatory service to the nation.

Recall that the NYSC had said that from their records, Adeosun applied for an exemption certificate, but,

however, failed to state whether the request was granted or not.

But, the Presidency in its first reaction to the Saga said it hopes the certificate forgery allegation against

the Minister of Finance would soon be proven to be false, and added that investigations were ongoing.



President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, was quoted as saying “The Minister of Information

has spoken on the matter.

Process is ongoing to address the allegations. When that process is complete, Nigerians will know the outcome.
