Kemi Adeosun dedicates court judgement to Nigerians in diaspora - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The former Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun has dedicated the court judgement on Wednesday over the 
National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) certificate saga to Nigerians in diaspora, reports ITREALMS.
Adeosun, ITREALMS recalls was exonerated her of any liability in getting certification of clearance from NYSC, before she could be appointed to any office in the country.

In her reaction, she said the ruling though vindicated her after a very traumatic spell. 

"It is, however, not only a personal victory; it’s also a victory for many Nigerians in the diaspora under similar conditions who are desirous to serve their country," she declared.

In a statement available to ITREALMS personally issued by her, she said expressed gratitude to all those who support during the travail.

"My lawyers have informed me of the judgment by the Federal High Court, Abuja, in the case of Folakemi Adeosun v The Attorney General of the Federation (FHC/ABJ/CS/303/2021) in which the court, presided over by Honourable Justice Taiwo Taiwo, ruled that the Constitution does not require me to present my first-degree certificate or any other certificate, including the NYSC certificate, to be appointed a Minister.

"More importantly, he also ruled that I was not eligible to perform NYSC by virtue of the constitution. This is the position I have always maintained and am happy for this official clarification.

"I wish to thank God, my family, friends, my counsel, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) and numerous well-wishers for their love, care and concern throughout this difficult period, which has lasted three whole years.

"I wish to add in light of the court’s ruling, I will at the appropriate time and without hesitation, take all further steps necessary within the law to protect my reputation," she said.
