Nigeria’s Finance Kemi Adeosun resigned her appointment so as not to be a baggage to President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term bid, her associates have said.
Concise News recalls that Daily Trust broke the news of her resignation on Friday following a report by Premium Times that the Finance Minister presented a forged NYSC exemption certificate as part of her credentials.
According to TheCable, Adeosun’s associates said the Finance Minister reportedly resigned so that her NYSC issue will not be used against President Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Party (APC).
Two of her close associates told TheCable that she “toed the path of honour by choosing to step down so that her NYSC issue will not be used against the president and the party” in the 2019 electioneering.
“Posterity will judge her for going the honourable thing by resigning,” one of the associates said.
Meanwhile, as at the time of filing this report, the Presidency was yet to yet to officially confirm her resignation.
