Following her resignation, Nigeria’s former finance minister, Kemi Adeosun has left the country, sources close to her have revealed.

Mrs Adeosun, finance minister since November 2015, stepped down from office on Friday after owning up to parading a forged youth service scheme certificate.

President Muhammadu Buhari accepted her resignation on Friday night, some days after it was first published of how she obtained the fake document and went on to secure plush employments with it, including as head of Nigeria’s finance ministry.

Mrs Adeosun explained in her resignation letter that the investigations carried out were true, but said she did not know the certificate was forged as she relied on associates who helped obtain it after she returned from the UK.

Although Nigerians welcomed her resignation, which many even complained was long overdue, they also demanded her immediate prosecution. Some civic groups have already instituted legal action to compel federal authorities to file charges against her.
