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

Her letter also revealed that she took the decision to resign after an internal investigation ordered by President Buhari declared the exemption certificate as fake.

Kemi Adeosun, the finance minister until yesterday, in her letter of resignation to President Muhammadu Buhari responded for the first time officially to the allegation of forging the NYSC exemption certificate, by expressing profound shock.

It was alleged that Kemi Adeosun had resigned under pressure over controversies surrounding her NYSC certificate, but there was no confirmation yet as at the time of this report.

The President thanked the Minister for her services to the nation and wished her well in her future pursuits.

A source told newsmen in August that President Buhari may "pardon" the minister as a reward for "the great works she has done for government - bailing out the country from recession and stabilizing the economy".

As mentioned, the Razer Phone 2 will reportedly launch on October 10, which is less than a year since the Razer Phone launch. It has 120 Hz refresh rate on its UltraMotion screen with Dolby ATMOS and THX certified stereo speakers.


Adeosun who was schooled and graduated overseas at 22, did not return to Nigeria until she was 34 and did not serve the mandatory one year.

The 58-year-old is also a former Exective Secretary of the Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI).

Zainab Ahmed was appointed the Managing Director of Kaduna Investment Company by Governor Patrick Yakowa in March, 2009.

The dual Nigerian and British national did not initially comment on the claims, leading to criticism from her opponents. My visits to Nigeria up until the age of thirty-four (34) were holidays, with visas obtained in my United Kingdom passport. Until recent events, that remained my understanding. "Be that as it may, as someone totally committed to a culture of probity and accountability I have chose to resign with effect from Friday, 14th September, 2018".
