President Muhammadu Buhari has thanked the immediate past minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun for her service to the country.
The source cited by the newspaper had said the resignation followed the allegation of not participating in the compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) and obtaining a certificate that the NYSC have disowned.
"The Hon. Minister toed the path of honour by choosing to step down so that her NYSC Certificate issue is not used against the president and the party during the general elections by the opposition". Adeosun did not comment on the claims initially, prompting criticism from her opponents. She also instituted a whistle-blower policy and helped push reforms to boost Nigeria's tax collection to increase non-oil revenue as the West African nation seeks to wean itself off oil.
Adeosun also oversaw a strategy of restructuring Nigeria's debt portfolio into longer term maturities by borrowing more offshore and less at home to lower costs. Nigeria, Africa's most populous nation with almost 200 million inhabitants, is scheduled to hold general elections in February, with Buhari seeking a second term.
