Ace comedian, AliBaba, has revealed the real reason former finance minister, Kemi Adeosun, resigned.
AliBaba who claimed to have spoken with “some people” in the corridors of power said that Nigerians have been misled and have falling prey to the controversial National Youth Service Corps certificate sage that shrouded Adeosun.
The comedian via his Instagram page said it’s the election year and Adeosun resigned because she refused to “play ball” with some people who need access to certain federal funds.
AliBaba in a post which has been deleted from his Instagram page said the “cabals” needed to discredit Adeosun and put her out of the office and by that move replace her with someone who will dance to their tune.
“I have talked with some people in the corridors of power. The certificate is not the real reason she resigned. It’s the reason given. It’s election year. Just like now, there are people who want access to certain federal funds, that only she has access to and she will not play ball.
“The best way is to discredit her, and put her out of the office, and by that move now let someone who will dance to their tune. It’s election season.
“Many people are getting the Kemi Adeosun NYSC matter wrong. She did not claim to have served. She came back to Nigeria when she had passed the age to serve. She was then advised to get a certificate of exemption. She did not think it was necessary because clearly she had passed the age.
“Then someone advised her to get it. Someone said, since she did not serve, because she was over the age to serve, all she needed was the certificate of exemption. They went and got it for her. The person who did, should have gotten her a legit one. She didn’t need to be present to get an exemption.
“So, it’s not that she claimed to have served and was issued a certificate for service she did not render. Many people have insurance cover and driving licence that they did not go through a proper driving test to get.
“How about Yellow fever vaccine card? Do you know how many people pick up their yellow fever card at the airport, only to reach their destination and are told it’s fake?”
The comedian also addressed Nigerians who had opined that Adeosun should be persecuted because ignorance is not an excuse.
The ace comedian stressed that all corrupt public servant and Nigerians should be brought to book if found wanting and not only Adeosun.
Recall that the embattled former Minister of Finance, in her resignation letter said she was shocked by the outcome of the investigation done on the allegation that her NYSC certificate which she had earlier tendered as Commissioner for Finance in Ogun State was not genuine.
She said she never knew the certificate was not genuine.

“I agree. Totally. But on the scale of things, he was the same person who said @Aycomedian should go and sit down and stop complaining about his movie being pirated, in his words “You have made enough from #30DaysInAtlanta, arresting boys who are selling your dvds (pirates *my word) who are trying to survive is tantamount to greed and inconsiderate, in this economy.
“As e don better for you no block others”. So stealing someone’s creative work is OK by the same person who believes a fake certificate should be punished. Hmmmmm. What other things are wrong that need to be dealt with and made right?”
