Buhari accepts Kemi Adeosun’s resignation, appoints Zainab Ahmed as replacement

Nigeria's finance minister resigns over forged document

Nigeria's Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun has reportedly resigned from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The resignation followed the allegation of not serving the compulsory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, and obtaining a certificate that the NYSC have disowned.

Earlier, NAIJ.com 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.

According to Premium Times, a close source confirmed that she left the country for the UK.

She instead allegedly procured a fake certificate of exemption from the NYSC to cover her tracks.

President Muhammadu Buhari put the Ministry of Finance under the oversight of the minister of state in charge of budget and national planning, Zainab Ahmed, the presidency said in an emailed statement.

Buhari, who came to power in 2015 on his integrity and anti-graft platform, is seeking re-election and is facing a formidable challenge from an array of opposition candidates from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the party he ousted from power.
