The National Union of Nigerian Students, NANS, has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to arrest and prosecute former Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun. NANS said EFCC should arrest and prosecute Adeosun over the alleged forgery of her National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, exemption certificate.
In a statement issued yesterday, the President of the body, Salahudeen Lukman also called for the arrest of the Director General, DG, of the NYSC under whom the forged certificate was issued. The statement reads, “It is highly embarrassing that an agency of government as exceptional as NYSC could be so lose, corrupt and uncoordinated to the extent that her certificate could be sold and forged.
“The Federal Government must as a matter of urgency curb all corrupt practices in the scheme. It is our resolve to pursue this matter to the latter to assist Mr President’s anti-corruption fight aimed at creating sanity in the public servic “While waiting patiently to see EFCC do its work on this subject matter on or before the next seven working days, the union shall not hesitate to employ other legitimate means under law to ensure the alleged ‘forger’ and her accomplice in NYSC face the wrath of the law. We are all equal before the law. Ignorance is not an excuse in the court of law.”
