Why PDP wants Ex-Finance Minister arrested, prosecuted

Mrs Kemi Adeosun, Former Minister of Finance

The leadership of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said it has noted the resignation of Mrs Kemi Adeosun from office as Minister of Finance, but insisted on her immediate arrest and prosecution for deserting national service and forging her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Exemption Certificate in addition to alleged impropriety and abuse of office as minister.

The party said in a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, in Abuja on Saturday that it wanted Nigerians to note that President Muhammadu Buhari, “whose administration has become notorious for shielding its many fraudulent and corrupt officials, could not summon the rectitude to sack Mrs Adeosun,” adding that she would have still been in office, if not for the sustained uproar by Nigerians and international creditors.

The main opposition party said its investigations revealed that the Federal Government, which earlier made efforts to defend Mrs Adeosun, has already perfected a plot to help her to evade prosecution following fears that she could open up on the humongous corruption going on in the financial sector under the Buhari administration.

The PDP noted that it was also aware of plots by the Federal Government to secretly move her out of the country, and for that, it urged the international community to be at alert and ensure she is repatriated to face justice in Nigeria should the Federal Government succeeds in its devious plan.

Furthermore, the PDP said it was similarly aware that President Buhari was not by any measure prepared to drop her from his cabinet but for the demand by those responsible for her appointment, who protested her continued stay in office, although for their own selfish gains. “A case of corruption fighting back!” The party noted.

The PDP, therefore, demanded an immediate open inquest into the records of the Finance Ministry under Mrs Adeosun, “to unravel all improprieties by the Buhari Presidency cabal, including alleged diversion of oil proceeds, fraudulent oil subsidy deals, leading to high fuel price; depletion of our foreign reserves, embezzling of funds returned by Switzerland and other huge sleazes in the ministry.”

The party also insisted that President Buhari must be held responsible for all infractions in the finance ministry under Adeosun, as he appointed and retained her despite having information on the certificate forgery; “a situation that confirms the decadence and lack of due diligence in the Buhari Presidency.”

The party added: “Nigerians already know that the Buhari Presidency is a citadel of iniquity with inherent proficiency in stealing, forgery and manipulation of processes.
