We May Not Investigate Alleged Adeosun’s NYSC Certificate Forgery - Police
The alleged National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) certificate forgery by the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, is everywhere, but the Nigerian government and its agencies appear to be in the dark about things that are happening in the nation.
It was the presidency earlier in the day that said it was not aware there was any allegation of such against a top government official and now the Nigeria Police Force has followed in like manner.
The spokesman for the police, Mr Jimoh Moshood, on national television said he was hearing about the allegation for the first time.
It is an issue that some Nigerians had thought the police will take up and trash, but that is not happening except a few things are done.
"I am just hearing it.
"We are just hearing about Alleged Adeosun's NYSC certificate forgery and nobody has come to lay complaint in any police station or police command headquarters or even at the force headquarters about such.
"You don't talk about what you don't know and what you don't have on your table" the police spokesman stressed.
An online media platform, Premium Times, had alleged that the Minister of Finance obtained her exemption certificate years after she graduated from a university outside the shores of Nigeria.
But the police said it would not rely on such claims to carry out its investigation.
"Even when you say it was raised by a reputable online media organisation, there is no provision for private investigation in Nigeria.
"If you have any complaint you should go to the nearest police station and lodge the complaint.
"If you have any evidence that you have gathered in the process of your complaint, you can equally get it across to the police commission that is responsible," Mr Moshood insisted.
