Kemi Adeosun, the former Finance Minister in Muhammadu Buhari’s first term as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has expressed satisfaction over an allegation which smeared her reputation for serving the Federal Government of Nigeria without participating in the National Youth Service Scheme – NYSC.

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday cleared Mrs Adeosun on her none participation on National Youth Service Scheme

The judgement handed down by Justice Taiwo Oladipupo Taiwo held that Adeosun was a United Kingdom citizen having been born in the United Kingdom in 1967 and remained there till 2003 when she came back to Nigeria her second nationality.

The Court further held that Adeosun was already 36 years of age when she graduated in London University in 1989, thus could no longer participate in National Youth Service Scheme NYSC.

Expressing excitement over the Judgement, Adeosun took to her official Facebook page monitored by 9NEWS NIGERIA and commended to court of this tone:

“My lawyers have informed me of the judgment by the Federal High Court, Abuja, in the case of Folakemi Adeosun v The Attorney General of the Federation (FHC/ABJ/CS/303/2021) in which the court, presided over by Honourable Justice Taiwo Taiwo, ruled that the constitution does not require me to present my first-degree certificate or any other certificate, including the NYSC certificate, to be appointed a Minister”

“More importantly, he also ruled that I was not eligible to perform NYSC by virtue of the constitution. This is the position I have always maintained and am happy for this official clarification”.

“The ruling vindicates me after a very traumatic spell. It is, however, not only a personal victory; it’s also a victory for many Nigerians in the Diaspora under similar conditions who are desirous to serve their country”.

“I wish to thank God, my family, friends, my counsel, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) and numerous well-wishers for their love, care and concern throughout this difficult period, which has lasted 3 whole years”.

“I wish to add in light of the court’s ruling, I will at the appropriate time and without hesitation, take all further steps necessary within the law to protect my reputation”.

I thank you all
