Adeosun Has Not Resigned, Aide Declares

Kemi Adeosun, the Minister of Finance, has not resigned her appointment from the cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari, a senior aide has declared.

A report emerged from the Daily Trust on Friday that Adeosun, who is alleged to be in possession of a fake certificate of exemption of the National Youth Service Corps, had finally quit her position in the government after two months of persistent complaints against her.

But an unnamed individual, whom the Nigerian Tribune described as a senior aide, debunked reports of her purported resignation.

According to the aide, the certificate saga is an agenda instigated by critics of the Minister.

The aide said, “It is not true.

“You should notice that we have not spoken on this matter since July 7 when the issue of NYSC certificate broke.

“It is an agenda that they are pursuing and we will not help them to authenticate that.

“I am here with you. You can also see the other aides and security details at their duty posts.

“Even the Minister is in her office right now carrying on with her work. Don’t mind them.”
