The All Progressives Congress (APC) has reacted to the resignation of Mrs. Kemi Adeosun as Minister of Finance. Adeosun dropped her appointment following her National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) exemption certificate scandal.
Reacting, APC noted that the federal government undertook investigation of the saga and that the right thing has been done. Its spokesman, Yekini Nabena, in a statement on Sunday said: “In President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration of integrity and transparency in the conduct of public affairs, no officer of government with a modicum of questionable conduct or integrity should stay in office.
“In past PDP-led administrations, the country was held down by corrupt and irresponsible public officers who refused to honour invitations of the National Assembly; closed down national airports against perceived political adversaries; bought luxurious bullet-proof vehicles with public funds at inflated prices; locked out National Assembly members, forcing federal lawmakers to climb high barricades in order to assess the legislative chamber.
“It was these acts of corruption, impunity, irresponsibility and executive rascality that made Nigerians vote in the President Buhari administration in 2015, with its Change mantra to put a stop to such undemocratic practices. “We wish Mrs. Adeosun every success in her future endeavors and join President Buhari in appreciating her immense contributions to the stability of the Nigerian economy in the past three and half years.”
