See What Buhari’s Minister Said About Adeosun’s Alleged NYSC Certificate Forgery
Nothing has yet been officially heard from the government over the allegation that one of its key ministers, Kemi Adeosun forged the National Youth Service Corps certificate.
The government had maintained a stony silence, but the matter has simply refused to die.
Despite the unwarranted silence, Minister of Information, Mr. Lai Mohammed said the certificate forgery allegation has not tainted the integrity of the government or that of his principal President Muhammadu Buhari.
He said the allegation against the minister was still being investigated, and that Buhari was only waiting for the conclusion before he would take any decision.
Mohammed said this on Monday when he paid an official visit to the Abuja office of The Authority newspaper.
Responding to a question from the editorial management of the paper on why Buhari was still keeping Adeosun in his cabinet, Mohammed said the case was still under investigation.
He said the appropriate agencies were still investigating the allegation against the finance minister and should be allowed to do their jobs.
“Until when an allegation is proven, you do not expect the President to act. The appropriate agencies have spoken, and they say they are investigating. The only thing we can do is to wait.
“By saying that the minister should resign or be sacked while investigation is still ongoing may also not be feasible in our clime because of the level of false accusations.
“How many times have they accused me of embezzlement? Even recently, they said my driver jumped out of the car, abandoned me and decamped to Peoples Democratic Party.
“People even alleged that President Buhari did not have certificate,” Mohammed said.
