DISGRACED: Nigeria's former finance minister, Kemi Adeosun

The last has not been heard of the former Finance Minister, Kemi Adeosun’s forged NYSC exemption certificate as the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, ICPC, said on Monday, September 17, 2018, that it had stopped investigations into the use of the certificate by the minister.

The ICPC stated this just as the NYSC said it had concluded its investigative report on the matter and submitted it to the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, its supervising ministry.

The former minister, who resigned on Friday, admitted that the NYSC exemption certificate was not genuine.

Rasheedat Okoduwa, the ICPC’s spokesperson, when responding to question about it on Monday said: “We stepped down the investigation into the matter so as not to duplicate the efforts of another agency which had taken it up.”

The ICPC however, did not specify the agency that is handling it.

On the part of NYSC who commenced investigation into the matter in July, the corps Director of Press and Public Relations, Mrs Adenike Adeyemi, on Monday, said the scheme had submitted its investigation to the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development for any further action.

“The report has been submitted to the Ministry of Youths and Sports Development and you can direct all your questions to them,” she said.
