The controversy over alleged forgery of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) exemption certificate by Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun may not disappear anytime soon.This is as an allegedly photoshopped photo of the minister in NYSC uniform has rent the social media air.

Recall that the controversy broke out after an investigative report by Premium Times.

According to the viral report, the minister graduated from the Polytechnic of East London, United Kingdom as a 22-year-old in 1989 but failed to make herself available for national youth service as required by Nigerian law.

She then allegedly “procured” an NYSC exemption certificate in 2009 on account of age.

The forgery was said to have been discovered by some members of the Senate during her screening as a minister, information which some members of the National Assembly allegedly used to blackmail her into releasing billions of naira to the assembly.
