Kemi Adeosun: How I got my NYSC exemption certificate

Kemi Adeosun: How I got my NYSC exemption certificate

THE WHISTLER recalls that Adeosun's alleged certificate forgery was first brought to the public domain after PREMIUM TIMES exclusively reported months back that the minister allegedly submitted "fake" NYSC certificate in 2015 when President Muhmmadu Buhari appointed her finance minister.

LEADERSHIP recalls that resignation followed the allegation of not serving the compulsory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, and obtaining a certificate that has not been authenticated by the body.

Buhari, who had since accepted her letter of resignation, thanked Adeosun for her services to the nation and wished her well in her future pursuits.

The dual Nigerian and British national did not initially comment on the claims, leading to criticism from her opponents.

Pochettino said that "of course" Lloris would remain captain, explaining: "He's the first that regrets everything". Tottenham Hotspurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has ruled out four players of Dele Alli.

Though her media aides did not come on record to speak to the press, they allowed journalists to see the Minister's auto port to confirm that she was on seat and has not resigned. During her ministerial screening, Bashir had tweeted, "Zainab Shamsuna Ahmed is very intelligent, I like all the answers she has given so far".

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

But a day after she stepped down, Adeosun, who was born and raised in England, departed the country with no news from the Nigerian authorities on the possibility of her prosecution.

"On the basis of that advice and with the guidance and assistance of those, I thought were trusted associates, NYSC were approached for documentary proof of status".
