JUST IN: Conflicting Reports Trails Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun Resignation

Nigeria's finance minister resigns over forged document

Nigeria's finance minister Kemi Adeosun resigned in a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday over the alleged forgery of a document exempting her from compulsory national service.

There has been no given reason on the decision of Adeosun stepping down from her position, although there has been an allegation of forging her NYSC discharge certificate.

She holds a Bachelor's degree in Accounting from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria in Kaduna, where she was born, and an MBA from the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State.

She started work in 1982 as an Accountant in Kaduna State Ministry of Finance in Kaduna state and moved to Nigerian Telecommunication Ltd (NITEL) in 1995, where she worked in various departments and rose to the rank of the Deputy General Manager (DGM).

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

During her time as Finance Minister, She set up "The Efficiency Unit", cut thousands of ghost workers from the government's payroll, led the whistleblower programme and championed the government's tax amnesty programme - the Voluntary Assets and Income Declaration Scheme.

The 58-year-old is also a former Exective Secretary of the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI). Adeosun did not comment on the claims initially, prompting criticism from her opponents. For me at my own end as the first son of the ministry, for now it's a no. I then received the certificate in question. I only wished she had done this earlier. "Be that as it may, as someone totally committed to a culture of probity and accountability I have made a decision to resign with effect from Friday, 14th September, 2018".
