An unconfirmed report by Nigerian newspaper, Tribune says that the minister of finance, Kemi Adeosun, has not resigned her appointment.
A Nigerian newspaper, Daily Trust, had broken the news of her alleged resignation earlier today, September 14. Kemi Adeosun, who was accused of using a fake National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) exemption certificate, has not come out to confirm the report of her resignation yet.
Director of Information, Mr Hassan Dodo, also said he had no information concerning the minister’s alleged resignation. However, an unidentified senior aide of the minister, who spoke with Tribune claimed that the report of the minister’s resignation is not true and merely fabricated to distract her. 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. “Í 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.”
There was also normalcy at the minister’s office with the aides going about their normal daily activities and the minister was reportedly in her office until 3.55pm when this report was filed.
