Buhari accepts Adeosun’s resignation, appoints Zainab Ahmed as replacement

Adeosun's departure is coming 24 hours after she resigned as finance minister following the certificate forgery allegation levelled against her.

Premium Times in July 2018 reported that the minister had forged her National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, certificate.

The media aide to the former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has reacted to the report that the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun resigned from her position. "I believe that in line with this administration's focus on integrity, I must do the honourable thing and resign".

"Adeosun is not a political heavy-weight and her resignation and replacement would be highly unlikely to alter Nigeria's overall fiscal and economic policies", he said in an emailed note. "The President thanked the Minister for her services to the nation and wished her well in her future pursuits", he said.
