Comedian Ali Baba has given his opinion concerning the resignation of Kemi Adeosun as minister of finance.
Kemi Adeosun dropped her resignation letter last week following a fake NYSC certificate scandal.
The former minister had tendered a fake certificate as exemption letter from NYSC and was cleared by necessary authorities before working with the government.
Reacting to the news of her resignation and how Nigerians took it, comedian Ali Baba took to social media to clarify some areas concerning the issue.
”Many people are getting the Kemi Adeosun NYSC matter wrong. She did not claim to have served. She came back to Nigeria when she had passed the age to serve. She was then advised to get a certificate of exemption. She did not think it was necessary because, clearly she had passed the age.
Then someone advised her to get it. Someone said, since she did not serve, BECAUSE SHE WAS OVER THE AGE TO SERVE, all she needed was the certificate of exemption. They went and got it for her. The person who did, SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN HER A LEGIT ONE. She didn’t need to be present to get an exemption. So, it’s not that she claimed to have served and was issued a certificate for service she did not render. Many people have insurance cover and driving licence that they did not go through a proper driving test to get.
Ali Baba went on to reveal that many people are walking about with fake certificates without knowing.
How about Yellow fever vaccine card? Do you know how many people pick up their yellow fever card at the airport, only to reach destination and are told it’s fake. I have talked with some people in the corridors of power. The certificate is not the real reason she resigned. It’s the reason given. It’s election year. Just like #NOI… There are people who want access to certain federal funds, that only she has access to. And like #NOI, she will not play ball. The best way is to discredit her, and put her out of the office, and by that move now let someone who will dance to their tune. ITS ELECTION SEASON YALL. It happened to @sanusilamidosanusi. QED.”
