According to him, the resignation of the minister was due to pressure from Nigerians after the media exposed her fake NYSC certificate.

Secondus added that the war against corruption by the President was a ruse, asking why the President had refused to also order investigation into a fake West Africa Examination Certificate being allegedly paraded by another presidential appointee.

Secondus said, “The resignation is belated. Why did the President keep her all this while when the scandal broke out?

“Why didn’t he, I mean the President, asked that the woman be investigated and even suspended if he was serious about the fight against corruption?

“We are aware of some lawyers that mounted pressure on the Presidency before the woman was forced to resign. The forced resignation was because of the 2019 presidential election, which we all know the President will lose.

“But if the President is serious, he should have asked the Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, to order the prosecution of the minister and all those that helped her to procure the fake NYSC discharge certificate.”
