Minister of finance Kemi Adeosun ‘Resigns’ her Appointment

Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, has reportedly resigned,

Kemi Adeosun has resigned her position as Minister of Finance, two sources in Abuja have confirmed.

However, according to saharareporters.com says it is unclear as of yet when exactly the resignation will take effect.

A source within the presidency who spoke with the national daily, said the resignation followed the NYSC certificate forgery scandal she had been enmeshed in.

Recall that in July, Premiumtimes 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.
