Less than 24 hours after her resignation's letter was acknowledged by the presidency, Kemi Adeosun, the erstwhile  Nigeria’s finance minister, Kemi Adeosun has left the country yesterday.



Mrs Adeosun, finance minister who was in office between November 2015, stepped down from office on Friday after owning up to parading a forged youth service scheme certificate, a scandal that was brought up through  investigative journalism of Premiums Time.

It will be recalled that the president accepted her resignation on Friday night, 69 days after PREMIUM TIMES first published a detailed investigation of how she obtained the fake document and went on to secure plush employments with it, including as head of Nigeria’s finance ministry.

Mrs Adeosun explained in her resignation letter that the PREMIUM TIMES investigation was true, but said she did not know the certificate was forged as she relied on associates who helped obtain it after she returned from the UK.

Although Nigerians welcomed her resignation, which many even complained was long overdue, they also demanded her immediate prosecution. Some civic groups have already instituted legal action to compel federal authorities to file charges against her.

In another news, her exit from the country may not be related to the demand being made by the opposition party (PDP) that the minister must be prosecuted.
