Adeosun speaks on resignation as Buhari names Zainab Ahmed in her place

Mrs Zainab Ahmed the minister of State Budget and National Planning will oversee the ministry of finance

Ms Adeosun was appointed as finance minister by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

The certificate scandal which erupted in July, however, did not go away with the Minister saying she resigned after finding out her NYSC exemption certificate was fake.

Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, has reportedly resigned.

Mrs Adeosun explained in her resignation letter that the PREMIUM TIMES investigation was true, but said she did not know the certificate was forged as she relied on associates who helped obtain it after she returned from the UK.

"The President thanked the minister for her services to the nation and wished her well in her future pursuits", his office said, adding that deputy budget minister, Zainab Ahmed, would oversee her portfolio.

She courted controversy again when she suspended and subsequently fired Mr Munir Gwarzo as the Director-General of the Nigerian Securities and Exchange Commission with Gwarzo challenging her powers to suspend him.

"The PDP is also aware of plots by the Federal Government to secretly move her out of the country, and for that, we urge the worldwide community to be at alert and ensure she is repatriated to face justice in Nigeria should the Federal Government succeeds in its devious plan", Ologbodiyan claimed.

"This has come as a shock to me and I believe that in line with this administration's focus on integrity, I must do the honourable thing and resign", she said. My visits to Nigeria up until the age of thirty-four (34) were holidays, with visas obtained in my United Kingdom passport.

"Upon inquiry as to my status relating to NYSC, I was informed that due to my residency history and having exceeded the age of thirty (30), I was exempted from the requirement to serve".
