Uproar As Minister Of Finance Kemi Adeosun Forges NYSC Certificate

Nigeria’s Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, did not participate in the mandatory one-year national youth service scheme. Instead, she forged an exemption certificate many years after graduation, PREMIUM TIMES can authoritatively report.

The year-long service, organised by the National Youths Service Corps (NYSC), is compulsory for all Nigerians who graduate from universities or equivalent institutions at less than 30 years of age.
In addition to being a requirement for government and private sector jobs in Nigeria, the enabling law prescribes punishment for anyone who absconds from the scheme or forges its certificates.
Eligible Nigerians who skipped the service are liable to be sentenced to 12 months imprisonment and/or N2,000 fine, according to Section 13 of the NYSC law.
Section 13 (3) of the law also prescribes three-year jail term or option of N5,000 fine for anyone who contravenes provision of the law as Mrs Adeosun has done.
Subsection 4 of the same section also criminalises giving false information or illegally obtaining the agency’s certificate. It provides for up to three-year jail term for such offenders.
Mrs Adeosun’s official credentials obtained by PREMIUM TIMES show that the minister parades a purported NYSC exemption certificate, which was issued in September 2009, granting her exemption from the mandatory service on account of age.

It is a moral issue. Don't reduce it to something that can be settled with the payment of a fine.
Can a big country like Nigeria afford to have a Minister of Finance known in Nigeria and abroad to be a fraudster? Would that not reinforce the belief that we Nigerians are all thieves?

Why is Premium Times singling our Kemi Adeosun?
Which of President Buhari’s children has served Nigeria through the mandatory National Youth Service Corp?
Did Zahra Buhari do her mandatory NYSC before being married off?
Has Yusuf Buhari served as a youth corper or does he just ride multi million power bikes of dubious origin?
Is the NYSC, under Buhari, meant for the masses alone?
This is a question Nigeria must answer with their votes in 2019?

I think the news should b right. Probably she has receded the age of service.

#5000 is not too much but what about her name,

Enyinda Nathaniel Okey

the issue is that whether na N2k fine or N100 fine, whether whatever, the world now knows say the lady na fake...working in a public office with a forged certificate is enough to make her resign! But she will live with shame for the rest of her life

Reuben Sampson

If she could forge an exemption letter, then she's capable of fraud & other corrupt practices.
