NYSC Certificate Scandal: 'Adeosun Must Return Salaries' - PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party is not satisfied with the resignation of former Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun over an alleged National Youth Service Corps exemption certificate forgery.
The party has said Adeosun, who resigned her appointment on Friday, must be made to refund the salaries and allowances she collected.
The party said the refund should start from her days as commissioner in Ogun State from where she was appointed as Minister of Finance.
The main opposition party also said Adeosun, who has dual citizenship, must be made to name those who assisted her to allegedly forge the certificate.
The National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, stated this in Abuja on Sunday.
He said if Adeosun named those that helped her, she would save the country from embarrassment arising from activities that members of the cartel would carry out in the future.
Secondus said it was not enough for Adeosun to resign, she must be made to face the law to serve as a deterrent to others.
He added that failure to take action would show that the Federal Government under President Muhammadu Buhari remains partial in its fight against corruption.
Secondus said, “With the impunity that this government is known for, there is no way the minister would have resigned if not because we are in an election year.”
