Ms Adeosun was appointed as finance minister by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

Nigeria's immediate past finance minister Kemi Adeosun has explained how she got a National Youth Service Corps exemption certificate believed to be fake.

One day after resigning from her position as finance minister, it is being reported that Kemi Adeosun has left the country.

Telecoms experts who also dialled her number at PREMIUM TIMES' instance Saturday evening also said the telephone certainly did not ring in Nigeria.

The minister felt that her position is becoming untenable and is hurting the President in the run up to the 2019 election.

The Reds have won four from four so far this season, but have yet to come up against a team that has seriously challenged them. The Reds play Paris St-Germain in the Champions League at Anfield on Tuesday.

"Our investigations reveal 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 very big corruption going on in the financial sector under the Buhari administration".

Meanwhile, President Buhari has approved that the Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, should oversee the Ministry of Finance with effect from today. She got her first degree in Accounting from Ahmadu Bello University in 1981, after-which she proceeded to Ogun State University for her MBA.

She blamed those she called "trusted associates", who helped to arrange the "exemption certificate", that came back to haunt her many years after.

A newspaper around noon published a breaking news that she resigned.

"Your Excellency, kindly permit me to outline some of the background to this matter". Upon enquiry as to my status relating to NYSC, I was informed that due to my residency history and having exceeded the age of thirty (30), I was exempted from the requirement to serve. "Be that as it may, as someone totally committed to a culture of probity and accountability I have made a decision to resign with effect from Friday, 14th September, 2018".
