Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, has resigned sources close to her told Daily Trust Newspaper.
It is not clear when she submitted her resignation letter.
According to our source, the resignation followed the allegation of not serving the compulsory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, and obtaining a certificate that the NYSC have disowned.
The minister felt that her position is becoming untenable and is hurting the President in the run up to the 2019 election.
Presidency sources tell NewsWireNGR she had to be forced to resign or she’d have been sacked – ‘though the President has been reluctant but this is an election year and the agitations to get her to explain whether or not she forged the documents keeps embarrassing the Presidency‘
