Breaking: Adeosun allegedly resigns as finance minister

Nigeria’s finance minister, Kemi Adeosun, has allegedly resigned, an unconfirmed report by Daily Trust quoting anonymous sources stated.

The newspaper, however, said it did not have information about when Adeosun submitted her resignation letter.

The source cited by the newspaper said the resignation followed the allegation of not participating in the compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and obtaining a certificate that the NYSC have disowned.

The minister, according to the report, felt that her position is becoming untenable and is hurting President in Muhammadu Buhari in the run up to the 2019 election.

At the time of this report, calls made by to Oluyinka Akintunde, the special adviser on media and communications to Adeosun, were not taken. A text message sent to him asking for confirmation of the development was not also replied.

Earlier, reported an anti-corruption group, Say No Campaign, called for probe into the certificate scandals involving Senator Ademola Adeleke and the minister of finance, Adeosun.

In a statement signed by its Co-convener, Ezenwa Nwagwu, the group said it has, through the legal instrument of the Freedom Of Information Act, written to the relevant authorities to respond to the allegations against the duo.

Nwagwu said there were obvious discrepancies in the two certificates presented by Senator Adeleke to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), stressing that the West African Examination Council (WAEC) needs to verify the authenticity of the result.
