The House of Representatives has directed the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to prosecute the Special Adviser and Chairman of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel (SPIP), Chief Okoi Obono-Obla, for forgery and misrepresentation.
This is sequel to the adoption of the report of the House Ad-hoc Committee that investigated the legality and modus operandi of the SPIP, at Thursday’s plenary.
The management of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has said that though the Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun, applied for an Exemption Certificate, it would, however, investigate the origin of the purported one in question.
The Finance Minister has been linked with multiple forgeries including an NYSC Exemption Certificate.
In a statement signed by the Director, Press and Public Relations of NYSC, Mrs Adeyemi Adenike, the service, however, failed to confirm the authenticity of the certificate it issued the embattled minister.
Titled “Re-Exemption Certificate of the Hon Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun”, the statement from the NYSC management read: “Our attention has been drawn to the issue of the alleged forgery of an NYSC Exemption Certificate by the Honorable Minister of Finance, Mrs Kemi Adeosun.”
“Checking our records, Mrs Adeosun did apply for an Exemption Certificate. We shall investigate the origin of the purported Exemption Certificate in question,” the statement read. (The Sun)
