Ex-Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun

The resignation of ex-Finance Minister, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun and acceptance of same by President Muhammadu Buhari is a strong signal that no officer of government with a modicum of questionable conduct or integrity should stay in office, All Progressive Congress (APC) has said.

The APC however described the voluntary resignation of the immediate past Finance Minister, Mrs Adeosun over the allegation of forged NYSC exemption certificate as an action of honour, strength of character and integrity.

This was contained in a statement signed by the acting publicity secretary of the party, Mr. Yekini Nabena and made available to newsmen

“Like all responsive and responsible governments concerned about the truth and due process, the federal government undertook diligent investigation of the allegation. Now that the report of the investigation is out, the right thing has been done. The honorable minister has taken the path of honour and resigned. We congratulate Mrs. Adeosun for her action”.

“In President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of integrity and transparency in the conduct of public affairs, no officer of government with a modicum of questionable conduct or integrity should stay in office” the statement added.

Nabena said the scenario showed the clear difference between the current president Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and PDP-led administrations in the past when according to him, the country was held down by corrupt and irresponsible public officers who engaged in one act of impunity or other.

In the past, the country was held down by corrupt and irresponsible public officers who refused to honour invitations of the National Assembly; closed down national airports against perceived political adversaries; bought luxurious bullet-proof vehicles with public funds at inflated prices; locked out National Assembly members, forcing federal lawmakers to climb high barricades in order to assess the legislative chamber” he said.

He added “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”.

The APC therefore saluted Adeosun’s courage and wished her every success in her future endeavors.
