Unconfirm reports say that Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, has resigned her appointment as Minister.
It is not clear when she tendered her resignation letter but a northern Nigeria Newspaper, Daily Trust was quoted as saying that the minister has resigned.
The report quoted presidency source as saying that Ms Adeosun’s resignation followed the NYSC certificate forgery scandal she had been enmeshed in. Recall that in July, Premium Times, an online medium had reported that she never partook in the mandatory One year NYSC scheme, a prerequisite to picking any job in the federal service.
The source in the presidency said Adeosun felt that her position is becoming untenable and is hurting the President in the run up to the 2019 election.
Till date, she has not come out to deny the NYSC certificate forgery allegation.
