- The acting national publicity secretary, also noted that the APC-led Federal Government undertook diligent investigation of the allegation

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says the resignation of Kemi Adeosun as minister of finance and acceptance of same by President Muhammadu Buhari is an action of honour, strength, character and integrity.

Yekini Nabena, the APC acting National Publicity Secretary, said this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday, September 16, in Abuja.

Adeosun in her resignation letter to the president admitted that her National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) exemption certificate was not genuine and might affect the credibility of the administration, if she failed to quit office.

Reacting to the development, Nabena said that like all responsive and responsible governments concerned about the truth and due process, the APC-led Federal Government undertook diligent investigation of the allegation.

“Now that the report of the investigation is out, the right thing has been done, the honourable Minister has taken the path of honour and resigned,” he said.

Nabena congratulated Adeosun for her action and wished her success in her future endeavors, and joined the president in appreciating her immense contributions to the stability of the Nigerian economy in the past three and half years.

He added that in Buhari’s administration of integrity and transparency in the conduct of public affairs, no government officer with a modicum of questionable conduct or integrity should stay in office.

He noted that in past Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP)-led administrations, the country was held down by “corrupt and irresponsible public officers”.

He said such officers had often time refused to honour invitations of the National Assembly; closed down national airports against perceived political adversaries and bought luxurious bullet-proof vehicles with public funds at inflated prices.

He recalled that such public officers had also locked out National Assembly members, forcing Federal Lawmakers to climb high barricades in order to assess the legislative chamber.

“It was these acts of corruption, impunity, irresponsibility and executive rascality that made Nigerians vote in the President Buhari administration in 2015, with its change mantra to put a stop to such undemocratic practices,” Nabena said.

PAY ATTENTION: Read the news on Nigeria’s #1 news app previously reported that President Muhammandu Buhari accepted the resignation of Nigeria's Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun. This was disclosed in a statement signed by Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president (media & publicity) on Friday, September 14.

The finance minister's resignation has ended several months of controversy and silence that heralded the investigation by an online news medium that the minister forged her National Youth Service Corp exemption letter.

President Buhari thanked the minister for her services to the nation and wished her well in her future pursuits.
