Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun, has reportedly resigned. It is however not immediately clear when she submitted her resignation letter and why.

LEADERSHIP recalls that resignation followed the allegation of not serving the compulsory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, and obtaining a certificate that has not been authenticated by the body.

When LEADERSHIP contacted the director of information in the ministry, Mr Hassan Dodo for confirmation of the report, he simply said: "No, no, no - I cannot confirm it. I really cannot confirm that to you. For me at my own end as the first son of the ministry, for now it's a no. Until I hear from her, my assumption is that it's not true."
