I didnt Know My NYSC Exemption Certificate Was Forged. Someone Did It For Me. – Kemi Adeosun, Finance Minister.
After about two weeks after the abnormalities surrounding the embattled Finance Minister, Ms Kemi Adeosun, she has broken her silence. Adeosun narrated that she did not apply for the exemption herself and not aware that what the ‘agent’ gave her was not from NYSC.
I was born in London and also had all my education there. I graduated at 22 and started working immediately. When I returned to Nigeria in 2000s, I knew about the national labour law requirements, including NYSC participation or exemption, but didn’t know how to go about it.
I relied on 3rd parties to assist and it looks like they took inappropriate steps. I am shocked and equally embarrassed to learn about this. I should have checked before now and I accept the blame for their wrongdoing because they acted on my behalf.
I accept full responsibility for this incident and regret that it even happened in the first place. I am prepared to do whatever that is required to redeem these grave errors.
I regret any inconvenience that this may have caused the government which I currently serve and the good people of Nigeria.” Kemi Adeosun
The Allegation against her has now been proved to be true. Kemi forged her NYSC exemption certificate. She has only on option left and this is to resign.
Kemi’s confession is highly commendable. It shows that you were really UK trained. If you were trained in Nigeria like Buhari your boss, you would have been using soldiers, EFCC, NCC, NBC, NNPC, Police, Air Force, ICPC and political thugs to harass everybody, instead of admitting the wrong done. We commend you for this, it is impossible for a public servant in Nigeria to come out openly with this kind of confession. This is a moving moment of confession, and we feel for you. We forgive you. But go the whole hog by resigning peacefully. It will be a drastic paradigm shift from the norm, you will be setting a new precedent which will henceforth apply to all other public servants that will come after you. It will be good for our nation. We love you for this. God bless you. Culled from @Hope For Nigeria.
