President Buhari Accepts Finance Minister, Adeosun’s Resignation

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

Kemi Adeosun has reportedly left Nigeria 24 hours after she resigned as the country's Minister of Finance.

The Daily Trust reports that Adeosun resigned on Friday, but not sure when the minister submitted her resignation letter.

In the letter, the British-born Nigerian said she did not relocate to Nigeria until she was 34 years old, four years older than the 30-year limit for participation by corps members.

Allegations that Adeosun had used a forged exemption certificate to avoid participation in the youth service scheme surfaced in recent months in the Nigerian media.

President Muhammadu Buhari accepted her resignation on Friday night, 69 days after PREMIUM TIMES first published a detailed investigation of how she obtained the fake document and went on to secure plush employments with it, including as head of Nigeria's finance ministry.

Adeosun who was schooled and graduated overseas at 22, did not return to Nigeria until she was 34 and did not serve the mandatory one year.

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

The statement continued: "Nigerians already know that the Buhari Presidency is a citadel of iniquity with inherent proficiency in stealing, forgery and manipulation of processes". During her ministerial screening, Bashir had tweeted, "Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed is very intelligent, I like all the answers she has given so far".

"Is it not clear to all that the Buhari administration's so-called anti-corruption war and purported integrity are mere orchestrations to hoodwink Nigerians and the worldwide community, while Mr. President oversees the most corrupt administration in the history of our nation?"
