Nigeria’s Finance Minister Kemi Adeosun ‘Resigns’
There are reports emerging that Nigeria’s Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, has resigned from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to sources, Adeosun resigned over allegations that she forged her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate.
It is believed that the minister felt that her position is becoming untenable and is hurting the President in the run up to the 2019 election.
Although some news outlet revealed that the minister resumed in her office this morning, it is unclear when the reported resignation will take effect.
A Nigerian Minister, Kemi Adeosun has resigned. I don’t remember tweeting “reigned” beside the name of a Nigerian minister. This was late in coming but better late than never.

With Kemi Adeosun’s reported resignation, it’s safe to declare that Nigeria’s journalist of the year is definitely our own @abdulfagge, for revealing her forgery and how she was being exploited by NASS. And allow me to famz that he’s my former co-worker. #ProudFriendsCommunity ?
