The National Youths Service Corps has disowned the purported exemption certificate in possession of the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun.
The NYSC was reacting to a publication in a national daily detailing how Mrs. Adeosun skipped the mandatory national service and forged an exemption certificate of the service to cover for it.
A statement by the NYSC’s director of public relations, Adenike Adeyemi, said the service will investigate the origin of the purported Exemption Certificate in question.
The statement, however, said Mrs. Adeosun applied for exemption.
It was, however, silent on when the application was made and what decision was taken on it.
