NYSC certificate saga: Kemi Adeosun reacts, applauds court judgment - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

Former Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun has reacted with applause to the court judgement on Wednesday exonerating her of any liability in getting certification of clearance from the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC), reports ITREALMS.

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.

"The ruling vindicates me 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.

"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.
