Further reports claimed that a source within the presidency who spoke with the national daily, said the resignation followed the NYSC certificate forgery scandal she had been enmeshed in.

Recall that in July, Premiumtimes had reported that she never partook in the mandatory One year NYSC scheme, a prerequisite to picking any job in the federal service.

The source in the presidency said Adeosun felt that her position is becoming untenable and is hurting the President in the run up to the 2019 election.

Till date, she has not come out to deny the NYSC certificate forgery allegation.

LIB reached out to Bashir Ahmad and he said he could neither confirm nor deny the report.

It was reported that an Anti-corruption group, Say No Campaign, has called for probe into the certificate scandals involving Senator Ademola Adeleke and minister of finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun.

According to on Thursday, September 14, signed by its Co-convener, Ezenwa Nwagwu, the group said it has, through the legal instrument of the Freedom Of Information Act, written to the relevant authorities to respond to the allegations against the duo.

Nwagwu said there were obvious discrepancies in the two certificates presented by Senator Adeleke to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), stressing that the West African Examination Council (WAEC) needs to verify the authenticity of the result.
