Finance Minister: Why NYSC must prosecute Kemi Adeosun – HURIWA

Published

on

Following the resignation of Kemi Adeosun as Minister of Finance, a pro-democracy and non-governmental organisation, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, on Friday called for her prosecution for forgery.

HURIWA made the call while dismissing Adeosun’s resignation over certificate scam as an “insufficient remedy for her alleged indiscretion.”

In a statement by the National Coordinator Comrade Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media Affairs Director Miss Zainab Yusuf, the organization also urged the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) to immediately drag her to court so she would be “sanctioned if found culpable or for the Attorney General of the Federation to do it himself or grant a fiat to a private entity to prosecute her over alleged forgery.”

HURIWA also expressed shock that President Buhari “still keeps his senior Special Assistant on public prosecution Mr. Obono Obla despite his indictment for parading fake WAEC certificate as attested to before the National Assembly by the hierarchy of the West African Examination Council (WAEC).”

The group said the slow action of the “President in showing the way out or tolerating persons with alleged questionable credentials has absolutely destroyed any claim of his government waging war against corruption because a government cannot claim to go to equity with tainted and soiled hands.”

According to HURIWA, “We are of the considered opinion that the Federal Ministry of Justice or the NYSC must institute a legal proceeding against the Minister of Finance since the NYSC has ruled that the exemption certificate could not have come from them.

“Her reported resignation if proven is neither sufficient nor has it paid for the severity of the alleged crime.”
