“having never worked in NYSC, visited the premises, been privy to nor familiar with their operations, I had no reason to suspect that the certificate was anything but genuine.''

Nigeria’s immediate past finance minister Kemi Adeosun has explained how she got a National Youth Service Corps exemption certificate believed to be fake.

The former minister, Kemi Adeosun resigned her appointment on Friday, a report was published that her NYSC certificate was not issued by the Corps. gathered that Adeosun, in a her resignation sent to President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday.

“As someone totally committed to a culture of probity and accountability I have decided to resign with effect from Friday, 14th September 2018,”

“Upon enquiry as to my status relating to NYSC, I was informed that due to my residency history and having exceeded the age of thirty (30), I was exempted from the requirement to serve,” Adeosun said in the letter.

“Until recent events, that remained my understanding.”

“Indeed, I presented that certificate at the 2011 Ogun State House of Assembly and in 2015 for Directorate of State Services (DSS) Clearance as well as to the National Assembly for screening.”

She has since been replaced by Zainab Ahmed, who until Friday was a junior minister in the Ministry of Budget and National Planning.

Was it a right decision for her to take?
Does this act/action contravenes the provisions of the Nigerian constitution? If yes,
Will the former minster be punished for this? 
Will  it be swept under the carpet? 
Does she deserve a presidential pardon? 
Is the Nigerian legislature truly scrutinizing the political appointees?
