Kemi Adeosun Evades Prosecution in Nigeria, Flees to UK

Kemi Adeosun Evades Prosecution in Nigeria, Flees to UK

"The party invites Nigerians to note that President Muhammadu Buhari, whose administration has become notorious for shielding its many fraudulent and corrupt officials, could not summon the rectitude to sack Mrs. Adeosun, adding that she would have still been in office, if not for the sustained uproar by Nigerians and global creditors".

"We acknowledge the resignation of KemiAdeosun from office as Minister of Finance, but insist on her immediate arrest and prosecution for deserting national service and forging her NYSC Exemption Certificate in addition to alleged impropriety and abuse of office", PDP spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said in a statement.

Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, has reportedly resigned.

The president also approved that Zainab Ahmed, the minister of state for budget and national planning, should oversee the ministry immediately. She got her first degree in Accounting from Ahmadu Bello University in 1981, after-which she proceeded to Ogun State University for her MBA.

A source told newsmen in August that President Buhari may "pardon" the minister as a reward for "the great works she has done for government - bailing out the country from recession and stabilizing the economy".

The opposition party also stated that Buhari must be held responsible for all infractions in the finance ministry under Adeosun, as he appointed and retained her despite having information on the certificate forgery. My visits to Nigeria up until the age of thirty-four (34) were holidays, with visas obtained in my United Kingdom passport. Having never worked in NYSC, visited the premises, been privy to nor familiar with their operations, I had no reason to suspect that the certificate was anything but genuine.
