The pan-Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere in the United States of America and Europe has called on the federal government to take action against those who accused former Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosu of forging her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate.

In 2018, allegations came up that Adeosun did not swerve the one-year compulsory national programme for graduates. Hence, ger appointment in office invalid.

She was also accused of fronting a fake certificate of exemption which she presented during her screening in 2015.

Owing to the entire saga, Adeosun voluntarily resigned from office.

But last week, a definite ruling was delivered by a High Court in Abuja where the ex-minister was absolved of all blames.

The ruling stated that Adeosun’s non-participation in the NYSC programme doesn’t make her ineligible for political office.

Reacting to the court verdict, the Europe and USA chapters of the Afenifere jointly signed a statement, saying that there was a need for the Presidency to question those who accused the former minister of forgery.

The group commended the judiciary for the court ruling, insisting that Adeosun should be celebrated rather than persecuted.

“Now that the truth is out and she has been vindicated, we urge President Buhari to do the needful by holding to account all those who brought needless grief and misery to Mrs Adeosun and the Buhari administration.

“We note that recently when a prominent minister from the North was in the eye of the storm, the Presidency threw its weight behind him. We expect the Presidency to celebrate her vindication with even greater enthusiasm.”
