Nigeria’s former Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun has left the country, sources close to her have said.
This comes bare a day after Mrs Adeosun stepped down from office on Friday after admitting to complicity in the alleged forged National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate scandal.
President Muhammadu Buhari accepted her resignation on Friday night, some days after it was first published of how she obtained the fake document and went on to secure plush employments with it, including as head of Nigeria’s finance ministry.
Mrs Adeosun explained in her resignation letter that though the findings of a probe panel were true, she did not know the certificate was forged as she relied on associates who helped obtain it after she returned from the UK.
While Nigerians welcomed her resignation, which some pointed out was long overdue, they also demanded her immediate prosecution.
