NYSC EXEMPTION SCANDAL! Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, resigns

The Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, has resigned from her position, Wuzup Naija gathered on Friday.

Though it is not clear when she submitted her resignation letter, sources claimed she might have resigned to contest for a political post.

Adeosun has been in the eye of the storm after an allegation of forging her  National Youths Service Corps exemption certificate many years after her graduation from the University of East London.

The minister felt that her position is becoming untenable and is hurting the President in the run-up to the 2019 election.

Premium Times had reported that Adeosun forged an exemption certificate many years after her graduation from the University of East London.

It was also alleged in the report that Adeosun’s official credentials show that she parades a purported NYSC exemption certificate, which was issued in September 2009, granting her exemption from the mandatory service on account of age.

Mrs Adeosun graduated from the Polytechnic of East London in 1989, at the age of 22. According to her curriculum vitae, Mrs Adeosun was born in March 1967.

The institution changed the name to the University of East London in 1992. Mrs Adeosun has her certificate issued in the new name.

Having graduated at 22, it is obligatory for Mrs Adeosun to participate in the one-year national service, for her to qualify for any job in Nigeria.
