The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said it has noted the resignation of Mrs Kemi Adeosun from office as Minister of Finance, but insisted on her immediate arrest and prosecution for deserting national service and forging her National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) Exemption Certificate in addition to alleged impropriety and abuse of office as minister.
The party said in a statement issued by Kola Ologbondiyan, its National Publicity Secretary, in Abuja on Saturday that it wanted Nigerians to note that President Muhammadu Buhari, “whose administration has become notorious for shielding its many fraudulent and corrupt officials, could not summon the rectitude to sack Mrs Adeosun,” adding that she would have still been in office, if not for the sustained uproar by Nigerians and international creditors.
The main opposition party said its investigations revealed 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 humongous corruption going on in the financial sector under the Buhari administration.

The PDP noted that it was also aware of plots by the Federal Government to secretly move her out of the country, and for that, it urged the international community to be at alert and ensure she is repatriated to face justice in Nigeria should the Federal Government succeeds in its devious plan.
