Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, has reportedly resigned from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to sources, Adeosun resigned over allegations that she forged her National Youth Service Corps certificate.
Adeosun had come under fire with several Nigerians, particularly on the social media, demanding investigations from the Federal Government into the allegations and calling for her resignation for presenting an alleged forged exemption certificate.
The certificate, which is dated September 2009, was reportedly signed by an NYSC Director-General, Yusuf Bomoi, who already left the scheme in January 2009.
In November 2015, Adeosun was appointed as Minister of Finance under President Muhammadu Buhari after she had been cleared by the Department of State Services and by the Senate.

I have just received, with sadness, news that Kemi Adeosun has resigned. She is a talented, courageous woman who drove a lot of important reforms as Minister of Finance. However, the NYSC saga had made her position untenable & the situation was only going to go from bad to worse.

The (now former) Honorable Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun has resigned. This is the noble and dignified thing to do.
We should be proud of her.
It should have come earlier but it has come nonetheless.
And considering this is a country where honour is rare, I’m proud of her. pic.twitter.com/Uw6h2whhvx
