Presidency reveals Kemi Adeosun under investigation over NYSC certificate scandal | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f


The Presidency on Monday said it hopes the certificate forgery allegation against the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, would soon be proven as false, disclosing that investigations are still on, even after more than 60 days since the story broke.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said the allegations against a key member of the administration were yet to be proven.

“The minister of information has spoken on the matter. And a process is ongoing to address the allegations. When that process is complete, Nigerians will know the outcome.

“Some people want a particular outcome and because they are yet to see this outcome, they are not happy. Give it (investigation) time. There is a process ongoing,” Shehu said during an interview on AIT’s Kakaaki.

He said the Presidency would act when it has all the facts.

“It’s an allegation. If it is proven, you will see what will happen. The minister and the NYSC have spoken on the matter,” he added.

When challenged on the length of time the ‘investigation’ was taking, Shehu said: “It is not for me to decide (the duration). I don’t have the full facts of the matter, so why the investigation is not out, I don’t know. I hope there will be an early outcome.

“Don’t forget, these people (Mrs Adeosun and other indicted officials), whose names are being dragged in the mud have families and relatives. We hope their innocence will be established,” he said.

  1. "The allegation against a key member of the administration is yet to be proven". Well on what basis were Dasuki and other members of the opposition dragged and humiliated my the police? If evidence is what is needed to take action then Dasuki would be a free man. It's one rule (suspicion) for the opposition and another (hard fact) for the friends and party members of Baba. What annoys me the most is that Buhari's handlers actually believe Nigerians are fools. They are not.evem trying hard enough to come up with intelligent excuses for the obvious double standard fornthe Buhari administration
