"I have, today, become privy to the findings of the investigation into the allegation made in an online medium that the Certificate of Exemption from National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) that I had presented was not genuine", she said in her statement.

Kemi Adeosun, Nigeria's finance minister has resigned her position over claims of certificate forgery uncovered by a local portal, Premium Times.

Kemi Adeosun, who lived in the United Kingdom until she was 34, said she had been told she was exempt because she was over 30. "The President thanked the Minister for her services to the nation and wished her well in her future pursuits", he said.

It is not clear when she submitted her resignation letter. Buhari's government hasn't rushed to dismiss the allegations, Liewerscheidt said in the note.
