THE WHISTLER recalls that Adeosun's alleged certificate forgery was first brought to the public domain after PREMIUM TIMES exclusively reported months back that the minister allegedly submitted "fake" NYSC certificate in 2015 when President Muhmmadu Buhari appointed her finance minister.

Adeosun, 51, said she was quitting to protect the integrity of the government.

The former minister was accused of accused of forging her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) exemption certificate.

"The President thanked the minister for her services to the nation and wished her well in her future pursuits", his office said, adding that deputy budget minister, Zainab Ahmed, would oversee her portfolio.

Adeosun who was schooled and graduated overseas at 22, did not return to Nigeria until she was 34 and did not serve the mandatory one year.

Local media have cited sources that said she resigned because of the reports that she had not duly served her one-year national service and by law was unfit to hold a government position. She also instituted a whistle-blower policy and helped push reforms to boost Nigeria's tax collection to increase non-oil revenue as the West African nation seeks to wean itself off oil.

Nigerian university students have to do a year of national service upon graduation as a way of ensuring that graduates contributed to Nigeria's development.
