There are strong indications that Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, has resigned from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to several sources in the ministry, Adeosun resigned over allegations that she forged her National Youth Service Corps exemption certificate.

She reportedly resumed in her office on Friday and she is yet to confirm her resignation.

Nigerians, particularly on the social media, have been demanding investigations from the Federal Government into the allegations and calling for her resignation over the alleged forgery.

The reports claimed that the finance minister, who did not participate in the one-year national youth service, allegedly forged an Exemption Certificate several years after her graduation.

The certificate, which is dated September 2009, was reportedly signed by an NYSC Director-General, Yusuf Bomoi, who already left the scheme in January 2009.
