Hero or villain? Reactions to Adeosun’s purported resignation

WHILE the federal government is yet to confirm or deny the reported resignation of the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, Nigerians are arguing whether she should be seen as being honourable (that’s if she truly resigned) or merely bowing to pressure.

On the one hand, many say Adeosun has done the right thing and deserves to be commended for towing the path of honour and deciding to step aside, even though she has been one of the shining lights of Buhari’s administration.

But on the other hand, some said that Adeosun did not qualify to be appointed a minister in the first, therefore the best thing would be for her to face prosecution and appropriate punishment meted out to her by the courts, as a deterrence to others.

Another group, however, said the Adeosun resignation saga was just a ploy by the federal government to divert the attention of Nigerians from Thursday’s controversial change of leadership of the Department of State Services (DSS).

The ICIR complied some of the views on the ongoing discussion and invites you to have your on say:


Whether Adeosun resigns or remains at her job, many Nigerians already have formed an opinion about her certificate saga.
