We have short memory span… Nigerians react to FG’s silence over Adeosun’s forgery scandal

IT is six days already – four working days – since Kemi Adeosun, Minister of Finance, was accused of possessing a fake National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) exemption certificate.

Nigerians wonder whether the issue has been swept under the carpet.

Many who commented on the issue on twitter say federal government’s silence could be a ploy to buy time, perhaps in the hope that the case would soon be forgotten.

Jake Nathan Corleone, a twitter user, shared a post on twitter saying, “We’ve forgotten about Kemi Adeosun low-key. This is the easiest country to govern.”

Here are what many other persons wrote about the Adeosun’s certificate forgery scandal:

Premium Times broke the story about Adeosun’s NYSC certificate forgery  on Saturday, July 7. Since then, the only official response to the report has been a two-paragraph statement issued by Adeyemi Adenike, NYSC’s Director of Press and Public Relations, which did not do much to address the allegation.

“Our attention has been drawn to the issue of the alleged forgery of an NYSC Exemption Certificate by the Honorable Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun,” the statement read.

“Checking our records, Mrs. Adeosun did apply for an Exemption Certificate. We shall investigate the origin of the purported Exemption Certificate in question.”

After the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, told journalists that  he could not comment further on the scandal, adding that the explanation by the NYSC is the federal government’s position on the matter.
