We reported a few weeks ago, our disappointment with why Buhari is yet to speak about, reprimand or take any action related to the public news that Kemi Adeosun forged her NYSC certificate and thus completely unfit to be Minister of Finance for Africa’s most populous nation. Who knows how many other certificates and documents she has forged. Why should over 200 million people trust her with maters relating to the finances of the nation? We don’t.
We are disappointed with Itsay Sagay, Chairman for the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption for releasing a woeful statement supporting Kemi and corrupt-fully denouncing the NYSC program that millions of Nigerians are forced to undertake. Itsay Sagay’s words below:
“I don’t know why the government has not reacted. But, let me tell you my reaction: This woman is a brilliant and extremely valuable member of this government. “A lot of the good things happening now – the welfare that Nigerians are enjoying and are going to enjoy, because it takes time, and the way our economy is booming, how we got out of recession – are due to her expertise, her commitment, her sacrifice. “There is nothing in this world that will make me remove such a woman from the government. The PDP can weep from now until there is no tear in their body; she is going to be there. We cannot afford to lose that woman. “Who cares about youth service? I don’t bloody care whether she did youth service or not. It’s irrelevant as far as I am concerned. “I don’t see anything serious about not doing youth service. I don’t see anything serious about it. That’s my own bias, not government’s. “I’m telling you now. If you ask me – If I were President Buhari, I would never, ever touch that woman because she’s damn good.”
AND NOW, NIGERIANS CALL FOR BOTH ITSAY SAGAY AND KEMI ADEOSUN TO BE FIRED.
