Veteran Comedian, Alibaba took his Instagram to defend and give insights on the Minister of Finance, KemiAdeosun’s resignation over allegations of forged NYSC certificate.
His post read,
“Many people are getting the Kemi Adeosun NYSC matter wrong. She did not claim to have served. She came back to Nigeria when she had passed the age to serve. She was then advised to get a certificate of exemption. She did not think it was necessary because, clearly she had passed the age. Then someone advised her to get it.”
“Someone said, since she did not serve, BECAUSE SHE WAS OVER THE AGE TO SERVE, all she needed was the certificate of exemption. They went and got it for her. The person who did, SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN HER A LEGIT ONE. She didn’t need to be present to get an exemption. So, it’s not that she claimed to have served and was issued a certificate for service she did not render.”
“Many people have insurance cover and driving licence that they did not go through a proper driving test to get. How about Yellow fever vaccine card? Do you know how many people pick up their yellow fever card at the airport, only to reach destination and are told it’s fake. I have talked with some people in the corridors of power.”
“The certificate is not the real reason she resigned. It’s the reason given. It’s election year. Just like #NOI… There are people who want access to certain federal funds, that only she has access to. And like #NOI, she will not play ball. The best way is to discredit her, and put her out of the office, and by that move now let someone who will dance to their tune. ITS ELECTION SEASON YALL. It happened to @sanusilamidosanusi. QED”
He also shared another post which read,
“May be some issues need to be cleared. If you are born in Nigeria, reside here in Nigeria, and go overseas to study, upon completion of your studies, you are expected to come back home to Nigeria to serve.”
“It’s a different matter from if you are born outside Nigeria, grew up in that country of birth and go to school there, and graduate in that same country. And If you do not carry a Nigerian passport, and decide to come to Nigeria to settle down, then you have to go serve. But if by the time you relocate you have passed the age of 30, YOU CAN NOT SERVE. You get an exemption.”
“There are are other grounds for exemption, but in the matter of age, once you have crossed 30 it’s automatic. That said, service is a national duty. Every Nigerian graduate must serve. However, we are not being honest if we say all Nigerians who are born overseas, studied overseas, and graduated overseas, must come home to serve in NYSC, before they are 30. Haba. Kemi Adeosun, was rightly advised. ”
“She however was given a fake certificate. Which then begs the question, Who done it? Again, that said, most of those who are calling her out need to know the facts.”
What do you make of it all?
