The embattled Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun did not attend this week’s meeting of the federal executive council following her resignation as exclusively reported by Daily Trust.
It is not clear when she submitted her resignation letter but she was not at the FEC meeting held on Wednesday.
She was also not at a meeting of some ministers which took place today, according to our reliable source.
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.
Daily Trust recalls that in July, the Presidency wrote the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) demanding a thorough probe of the alleged exemption certificate scandal involving the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun.
An online newspaper, Premium Times had reported that the Minister who graduated from London East Polytechnic at the age of 22 in 1989, failed to comply with NYSC Act, which made it compulsory for every Nigerian graduate at home or abroad to participate in one year of mandatory service to the nation.
